We need at least five students to participate in the event. The School of Journalism and Mass Communications participated in a similar mock press conference last spring, and it was great fun and a good learning experience. It involves real-life scenarios, ranging from drug arrests to political corruption cases. This time the U.S. Attorneys are coming — some of the country’s top federal law enforcement officers — so it’s an even bigger deal. The event is held in a television studio and is quite realistic.
