LAW

Summer Law Programs for high school students

It’s high time we start teaching law to our kids. Learning and practicing law helps children become better citizens. They get trained for keeping up to their social values, and following rules and regulations from a young age. But beyond that, law and legal practices are rewarding careers and offer ample growth opportunities for students who want to pursue their exceptional passion – not just typical doctor and engineer stuff. And that’s where our Law Camps come into action.

Our Law Camps in Pennsylvania are usually offered at either of the three venues: Swarthmore College, Saint Joseph’s University, or Cabrini University. During their days at the law summer camp, they practice the legal procedures and judicial processes in a fun way. Top industry leaders, mentors, and coaches from the same field have designed interesting resources and activities that keep the campers gainfully engaged. At the camp, our young lawyers practice how to

  • Record case facts

  • Find evidence and proofs

  • Analyze the available pieces of information, facts, figures, evidence, and proofs

  • Present their findings in an appropriate way

  • Defend or accuse their peers for the crime

  • Solve murder mysteries and blame the actual murderers

  • And a lot more in the form of role plays and case studies
     

But that’s all done in a way that piques their interest and teaches them the practical sense of this broad career. Our law summer camp is divided into three broad bands: public safety (for students of grades 4th – 6th), Crime Science for middle schoolers, and Jr. Law school – our special summer law program for high school students.

Plus, they get a flavor of different specializations in law: corporate, family, forensic, etc. Want more information? Just leave us a message via live chat and one of our representatives would follow-up – instantly, with a comprehensive guide about these law camps and the discounts you’re eligible for.
