梅尔文R. Wright Youth Law Fair
Each year, the 梅尔文R. Wright Youth Law Fair offers a free daylong educational event that tackles the most current legal issues facing local students. Past topics include social media use, bullying, and racial profiling. The students are introduced to a hands-on experience within various aspects of the law through a mock trial and exhibition hall. 在模拟审判中, students led by licensed attorneys will present a fictionalized case, acting as defense attorneys, 检察官, 陪审员, 法官, 或目击者.
成立于2000年, the Youth Law Fair provides an opportunity for the local students to have a positive experience with the legal community. In partnership with local community organizations, 教育工作者, and like-minded students, the day encourages an expanded view of the judicial system, introduction to community resources, and pursuit of higher education.
The day will include activities such as courthouse tours led by D.C. Superior Court 法官, a mock trial in the courtroom led by attorneys, showcase of local organizations, 共进午餐, 和抽奖活动奖品! 点击 在这里 to see a list of previous Youth Law Fair themes.
