Politics and Government
For the politically-inclined student, Frisch offers its students the opportunity to participate in Mock Trial, Model United Nations and the Federal Reserve Bank Challenge. Students learn about current political issues relating to law, economics and foreign policy and develop their skills in competition.
The Frisch Mock Trial team consists of students who are interested in learning about and being trained in our nation’s judicial system. The Mock Trial team participates in a statewide competition sponsored by the New Jersey State Bar Association. Positions on the team include: lawyers, witnesses, and jurors. The students then compete against other schools in a court case before a judge in a local courthouse.
In Model UN, students learn about the function and operation of the United Nations, as well as the intricate workings of the various groups and committees of the UN. At meetings, students research and familiarize themselves with the country they have been appointed to represent. The culmination of this club is a three-day trip to the Yeshiva University sponsored Model United Nations.
The Wall Street Economics and Finance Club select students for a prestigious program sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Students are invited to attend six meetings, consisting of visits to major financial institutions, at which they learn about careers for economics and finance majors, speak with financial professionals, and hear talks given by Wall Street economists. Club members also have the opportunity to participate in a presentation competition in which summer internships are awarded as prizes.
