The BBA Summer Jobs students continued their summer adventures with a stop at the Adams Courthouse for VIP tour and crash course on the history of the Massachusetts legal system. After touring the building and taking turns posing in the Justices’ seats, the students met with Justice Cynthia Cohen to learn more about her career path and her role as an associate justice on the Massachusetts Appeals Court.

Take a look below for more highlights from the field trip:
