The 2011 Justice Teaching Institute's theme"Teaching Civility in an Uncivilied Environment" was held in Edenton, NC on August 1 - 3, and focused on civility in a politically diverse country that operates under the rule of law. Our modern court system protects us from vigilante justice and random verdicts based upon the whim of a monarchy or dictator.
Highlights of the program included participation in a Moot Court activity in the Chowan County Courthouse in operation since 1767, the oldest operating courthouse in the nation; training in conflict resolution, mediation and arbitration techniques in a variety of situations. In addition, participants toured Edenton and other historic places of interest in the northeastern region. Access the article and video highlights.
