Seven lucky Thurgood Marshall Academy juniors and seniors have spent their summers as interns at the DC Superior Court. Officials at the court assigned each TMA student her own judge. Since then, our students have been hard at work inside their respective chambers. The group has worked alongside clerks, law students, special counsel, and judges to make sure the court effectively handles its caseload.
This morning, the students had a Q & A session with the Chief Judge of the DC Superior Court, the Honorable Lee Satterfield. The group fielded some tough questions posed by the Chief Judge before challenging him with some of their own.

On any given day, our students can be seen sitting in on murder trials, assisting with jury selection and discussing complex legal matters with seasoned law professionals. To get a better look at all of the work they have completed check out our class blog: http://tmaclerks.wordpress.com/
