Can you believe it? It's already been 8 months. Just like that, this year's installment of Law Day has come and gone. We've learned about discrimination, advocacy, criminal and civil trials. We've gotten a better understanding of our rights and the limits of our legal system. Lastly, we've gotten a look into the daily lives of lawyers and the skills and thought processes that are needed to advocate effectively.
Students have wowed me month after month with their deep intrigue and engagement in the program, always eager to know about how they performed in the previous Law Day as well as the topic for the upcoming lessons. Some students even expressed their disappointment in the program's ending, though they know that this indicates their moving closer to the Tenth Grade.
