PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. — The Calvert County State’s Attorney’s Office, in conjunction with the criminal justice program at Calvert County Public Schools, has initiated a program that will permit high school students to “shadow” prosecutors as they litigate cases in Circuit and District Court. 

The students will be able to observe actual courtroom proceedings to learn first-hand how the criminal justice system operates. 

So far, students from Calvert and Patuxent High Schools have signed-up. 

Calvert County State’s Attorney Robert Harvey encourages more students to participate. 

The program will kick-off on October 7, 2022.

For more details on how to join the program, contact the Calvert County State’s Attorney’s Office or email

  1. its too bad that there can’t be test cases to determine if someone should be SA or a judge. A test case would be one in which the suspect would be sentenced, but the charges wouldn’t be real, to see if the case was handled responsibly. To see if charges were dropped when they should be, or tried when it should be, to see wheether a responsible sentence was given. Its also too bad someone can’t be voluntarily in jail to see how it is, so they could decide whether they were interested in going back or not.
