NJC classroom enhanced with courtroom setting gift

Room 1246 at the NJC received a welcome addition this October.


Mentis Technology Solutions, LLC., which makes aiSMARTBENCH case-management software for judges, donated a handcrafted mahogany and maple courtroom setting to the College. The piece, which consists of a judge’s bench, clerk station and witness stand, has been installed in room 1246 to be used for courtroom simulations.

Jim Downum, vice president of development and co-founder of Mentis Technology Solutions, receives a plaque of appreciation from Joy Lyngar, the NJC’s chief academic officer. The plaque acknowledges the Mentis gift and will be displayed in the classroom where the courtroom setting (background) has been installed.
