New Mexico Hosts University Law Camp

Albuquerque, NM – On June 11, 2014, the District of New Mexico hosted a law camp at the Pete Domenici Federal Courthouse in Albuquerque, NM, for the University of New Mexico (UNM) Law School. UNM Law School conducted an application and interview process for 12 to 15 year old students to be selected in attending the law camp. Deputy Marshals for the District of New Mexico hosted and coordinated the Federal Law block of instruction. The group of young students attending the law camp visited with Federal Magistrate Court Judge Steve Yarborough, were able to see how Federal Probation operates, and were shown the inner workings of the Court of the Clerk’s Office. Judge Yarborough explained the Federal system and demonstrated all the steps of the judicial process. Deputy Marshals explained their duties to the students and DUSM Todd Kozuszko and his K-9 explosives dog “Hope” gave a demonstration on explosives detection. After the students selected a judge, attorneys, a probation officer, a clerk, and deputy marshals, they finished the camp with a court room role play.
