Yavneh Academy Places Second in Statewide Law Competition

On May 24, Yavneh Academy’s Law Fair presented its winning case at the New Jersey Law Center in New Brunswick. Out of the 68 entries in a statewide competition, Yavneh won second place for fifth grade. The students’ original case presented the issue of a student’s right to privacy and whether a school could read the student’s emails written on a school-issued iPad. Students wrote a courtroom script in which they portrayed both the lawyers and witnesses. They had the opportunity to perform in a real courtroom and see for themselves how the judicial system works. Yavneh participants were: Sienna Dube, Sophia Esses, Neima Herman, Rebecca Kieffer, Adele Novoseller, Paige Schwartz, and Natalie Wisotsky.
