Launched in 2005, the ACE Program has helped educate thousands of high school students about the appellate courts. The program includes a classroom curriculum administered by appellate attorneys, followed by a visit to the Court of Appeal to observe oral arguments in a case previously studied in the classroom. After oral argument, the students are introduced to the appellate court process first-hand with an opportunity to interact with the justices and the attorneys. ACE is co-sponsored by the Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, the Constitution Rights Foundation, the Los Angeles County Bar Association’s Appellate Courts Committee, and the California Academy of Appellate Lawyers.
