To culminate this fall’s SUNY Think Tank on October 18, students presented arguments on the “Stand Your Ground” Laws to staff and students. A stand-your-ground law allows defendants to “stand their ground” and use otherwise unlawful force without retreating, in order to protect and defend against threats or perceived threats. The students’ well-prepared statements on the issue were developed after weeks of research.
Presentations were received with applause and all participants were invited to celebrate their accomplishment with refreshments and a certificate.
The Center thanks SUNY Albany for partnering with students to provide a college-level class experience.
