Seventy-seven attorneys are heading out to teach over one thousand Boston public school students of all ages about the Magna Carta through this year’s Law Day in the Schools Program. The Program, which aims to introduce students to the role of attorneys and the legal system, offers lawyers a way to engage with Boston public school students and share their passion for the law. While students in middle and high school drafted their own charters, elementary school students played a game and participated in a small group activity to learn about the importance of rules.

Attorney Emily Hodge teaches Bradley Elementary School student about why the Magna Carta is important.
