Academics | Student Success

Six Criminal Justice students recently observed a suppression hearing during a visit to Stoughton District Court with Professor Peter Hainer. The students heard lawyers and witnesses present evidence to determine if police had reasonable suspicion or probable cause to search a suspect on whom they found a gun. First Justice Richard Savignano presided, twice clearing the room during breaks to talk privately with the students and invite their questions.

These trips are part of Professor Hainer's ongoing experiential learning series, where students spend several hours in various regional courts, sitting in on a range of cases and hearings.
