COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's Supreme Court is offering a new learning program that allows high school students to see how the court operates without leaving their classrooms.

The court's Civic Education Section recently unveiled "Under Advisement: Ohio Supreme Court Cases on Demand." A court release says the program provides teachers with lesson plans developed specifically for a civil case and a criminal case already argued to the court. Teachers lead students through an in-depth study of the already-decided cases, with students reading the case facts and watching oral arguments on video.

The program is intended to bolster students' understanding of Ohio's court system.

The lesson plans are free and designed to align with Ohio's Learning Standards for the High School American Government Curriculum. Teachers can access the lesson plans on the court's website .
