Summer Mentoring in Legal Education

S.M.I.L.E. Gwinnett participants visiting the Gwinnett County Medical Examiner’s with State Court Judge Pam South, Magistrate Judge Kim Gallant, Assistant Solicitor Dana Pagan, and South Gwinnett teacher Rebecca Streetman.

Is that really a spleen? How many bodies can you fit in here?

These are just a few of the questions posed by 19 high school students visiting the Gwinnett County Medical Examiner’s Office as a part of the Gwinnett County State Court S.M.I.L.E. Program. While the students didn’t see any bodies, Dr. Carol Terry, Gwinnett County’s Chief Medical Examiner, along with Investigator Eddie Reeves, gave personal accounts of their death investigations and use of forensic pathology at Gwinnett County’s morgue. This is just one of the many opportunities that S.M.I.L.E. Gwinnett participants will experience this summer.
