Your supervisor has asked you to lead a team of paralegals in your office in a project to prepare a public service PowerPoint presentation to the community about how a case moves through your state’s criminal court system. This presentation will explain the steps in how a case moves through the courts and who is involved in the courtroom workgroup.
The presentation should be 4–5 slides in length (not including the introductory slide or reference slide) and should include the following:
- List the stages of the court process and what occurs at each stage.
- Who are the members of the courtroom workgroup, and what are their roles in the workgroup?
- Include how the case would be appealed to a higher court in your jurisdiction.
