Trial of the Century

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.

You can watch the entire trial on the YouTube video above.
