Small Claims Court.
Eaneman, Paulette S.
These classroom materials are part of the Project Benchmark series designed to teach secondary students about our legal concepts and systems. This unit focuses on the procedures and cases of the small claims court. The materials outline the kinds of cases, procedures of the plaintiff and defendent, trial procedures, rights of appeal, writ of execution, and alternatives to the present small claim court system. Suggestions for a sample lesson using the materials are also included. This lesson requires students to hold a mock small claims court session in the classroom with students playing the roles of the judge, court clerk, plaintiffs, defendants, and witnesses. (DE)
