September 09, 2010

Extras are needed for the pilot episode of "World on Trial," to be filmed in the Lewis Katz Building in University Park, Pa.

"World on Trial" is a multimedia, educational series examining sharply contested international human rights issues in the context of courtroom trials before live multinational juries. The series is a collaboration of an Emmy-Award winning team from Penn State Public Broadcasting, Penn State Law and The School of International Affairs. The Sept. 20 episode will examine France’s 2004 law banning the wearing of conspicuous religious symbols in public schools (also known as “the headscarf ban”). Extras will be audience members in the courtroom.

Extras must sign a release in order to participate and be available from 8 a.m. to noon and from 2:45 to 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 20. Lunch will be provided. If you are interested in participating in "World on Trial" as an audience member, send your name, a photo, and your contact information to Michelle Boldon at rmb317@psu.edu by Sept. 16. She also can be reached by calling 814-867-4252.

  • The state-of-the-art courtroom in the Lewis Katz Building features technology that can connect to speakers and events worldwide.
