Joy Fossel, Jon Bylsma Attend Grand Rapids Bar Association's 5th Annual Constitution Day
The Grand Rapids Bar Association held its 5th annual Constitution Day on Sept 16th, 2016, where Joy Fossel and Jon Bylsma were in attendance. 49 attorneys and several law students visited 26 GRPS schools to spend an hour with every 5th grade class talking about the United States Constitution. Each attorney had the opportunity to talk about the aspect of the Constitution (including the Bill of Rights) that he/she most valued. Joy Fossel worked with her class on due process and conducted a mock trial with the students serving as defendant, prosecutor, defense counsel, judge and witnesses. The goal of Constitution Day was to make the Constitution come alive for the students and to get them thinking about how the law of the land has relevance in their own lives.
