Hispanic National Bar Association’s Youth Law Symposium in Philadelphia

September 11, 2018

Eight of our high school students, grades 9th – 12th participated on a Hispanic National Bar Association’s Youth Law Symposium in Philadelphia on Saturday September 8, 2018. They were able to join students from Philadelphia in meeting litigators of color from all over the country and discuss their own aspirations of studying law. The program was very intimate and each panelist discussed their challenges and successes and what it took for them to reach their dreams of becoming a lawyer. Our students, who didn’t mind arriving in full uniform on a rainy Saturday morning, walked away with contact information they received through networking and the possibility of future internships and other exciting opportunities.

I would like to send a special thank you to Mr. Robert Ransom for introducing this opportunity to our students.. With your leadership and commitment, I know we will have yet another LEAP alumni study and practice law just as you have. Your example is valued.
