Law Student Volunteers Wanted!
Professor Turley's Annual Kids Mock Trial
Athena Hemphill, J.D. '12, speaks with a student-juror after the program; Karthik Kumar, J.D. '14, plays defendant B.B. Wolf, Judge Professor Jonathan Turley presides.
For the sixth year in a row, Professor Jonathan Turley and GW Law students will be teaching law and civics to local elementary school children during Spring Break. The program includes a mock criminal trial of the Big Bad Wolf—where the children are the jurors—as well as lessons on the Constitution and law enforcement. Hours count as legal education pro bono hours for the GW Law Pro Bono Program.
2013 dates: Monday, March 4 and Thursday, March 7
(attorney auditions and training for all volunteers will take place in February)
Please contact program coordinator Claire Duggan to sign up to volunteer or for more information.
