On May 5, 2017 Barry A. Kozyra celebrated Law Day with students from Spring Garden School, who tried a case involving the 14th Amendment as to both due process and equal protection of the law. The mock trial fact pattern involved a female student who had shaved her head in violation of a school rule and was suspended, while male swim team members were allowed to shave their heads for their sport without sanction. The students played the roles of witnesses and co-counsel, and demonstrated an understanding of the issues, their legal rights and how the courts work when juries are involved.
