Thank You to Our Law Day in the Schools Volunteers

 

Tomorrow, the Boston Bar Association’s Law Day in the Schools program will wrap up for this year. BBA volunteers spent time in 15 different Boston Public Schools teaching over 1,700 students about due process and the importance of fair and equal rules. Engaging with volunteers through a game, elementary students experienced firsthand the injustice created by unequal rules. By then creating their own rules that applied to everyone, students understood how implementing the rules equally gives everyone the same chance. At the middle and high school level, students were introduced to the requirements for due process as outlined by Judge Henry Friendly in 1975 and then examined real-world scenarios through that lens.

This program would not be possible without the dedication and participation of our volunteers. We’d like to extend our sincerest thanks to the 113 BBA members who volunteered this year.
