Day 1 - Home - Winsted, CT
Today’s journey will help you understand the law so you do not get in trouble (at least for the day)!
Enjoy a guided tour at the American Museum of Tort Law. Visitors to the Museum will enjoy learning about tort law and trial by jury, and will see how both have improved the lives of all of us. The Museum has one gallery for important precedent-setting cases, another gallery exhibiting dangerous toys, and a third with interactive panels which let visitors learn about seven cases in detail. Also, there’s a theater that runs a brief (11 minute) movie which traces the evolution (and importance) of trial by jury and tort law.
Lunch will be at Mario’s Tuscany Grill where guests are enveloped in a warm and gracious atmosphere the moment they arrive. You will be welcomed to their lively family, where great food, engaging service and a warm atmosphere await! Please pre-select one from the following: Eggplant Parmigiana (Topped with Melted Mozzarella Cheese and Tomoato Sauce), or Fettuccine Carbonara (Sautéed bacon, Onions, Prosciutto, and Green Peas in an Alfredo Cream Sauce), or Chicken Picata (Sautéed with Broccoli and Capers in a Lemon Butter Wine Sauce), or Salmon Primavera (Served with Sautéed mixed vegetables). All entrees will be served with Salad, Coffee, Tea, Soda, and Dessert.
Also today, enjoy a guided tour of the Tapping Reeve House and Law School. This tour brings to life the experiences of students at America’s first formal school of law. Discover what brought promising young men to study in Litchfield and how politics, society, and education came together at Tapping Reeve’s Law School.
