On Thursday, February 28, Harwich High School will host an expert panel on civil liberties from 11-1 in the high school library. The panel will feature the Hon. Robert Rufo, Plymouth County Superior Court Judge, Cape and Islands Assistant District Attorney Edward Lynch, Defense Attorney Robert Hofmann, and Harwich School Resource Officer Tom Clarke.

The panel will consider hypothetical scenarios of police-citizen interactions in a mock Motion to Suppress hearing. This is the sixth annual panel hosted by the HHS Government classes, and the panel will present to three separate groups of students. HHS is profoundly grateful to our experts for taking the time to share their expertise with our students.

Harwich High School is at 75 Oak St, Harwich, 508-430-7207.
