Trial of the Century

Live Stream of the Trial.

This semester, students and faculty in criminal justice, international studies, and political science have come together for an Alternate Reality Learning Experience (ARLE) in the form of a mock trial. This simulation involves a fictitious trial of Lee Harvey Oswald, with students portraying FBI, CIA, and Secret Service agents, news reporters, attorneys, and international government witnesses. The ARLE allows students to experience a crime investigation from an insider’s perspective.

For years, conspiracy theories have abounded, but on Nov. 3-4, 2017, Saint Leo students will hear the evidence and decide once and for all if Oswald really did murder Kennedy.

Everyone is invited to Selby Auditorium in Lewis Hall at 5 p.m., on Friday, November 3rd, for jury selection (voir dire), and 9 a.m. on Saturday, November 4th, for opening statements in the trial. The verdict is to be read at 4 p.m.

Event will be streamed live.
