Event Type: Diversity Matters Event

Hofstra Law is once again hosting Youth Law Day on Friday, March 29th from 8:30am-2pm. Youth Law Day is a program sponsored by the New York State Bar Association's Committee on Diversity and Inclusion and the Law School Admission Council. Its goal is to expose high school students of color to the great potential of a law-related career with the hopes of reducing the mystery or sense of unattainability that might be associated with it. 

We have invited high school students from the Westbury and Roosevelt districts to come and learn about the law as a career through an interactive experience with law professors and legal practitioners. Each year we invite current law students to participate as well. It is a great testimony that the high school students get to see current students of color pursuing a legal career.

We are going to provide the high school students with a mock law school class, and then provide a hypothetical and with the assistance of current students and members of our Trial Advocacy and Mock Trial teams, give them the opportunity to "act like lawyers" and prepare and present opening and closing statements and examine a witness.
