Topic: The 4th Annual Maine Civil Liberties Student Conference, held in Belfast in September, was attended by students from several area high schools. We “listen in” on one of the break out sessions where students talked about searches in school and the 4th ammendment. What types of searches would they consent to? In what situations would they refuse or ask to call their parents or a lawyer? What would they think about a fellow student who refused to be searched? Several possible scenarios were discussed. The session was facilitated by MCLU Executive Director Shenna Bellows.
