Summer Law Program Enrolling Now!
A Great Opportunity for High School Students
Designed to introduce high school students to the civil and criminal court systems, experiences of trial lawyers, and the benefits of an education in legal studies, Monroe College is now enrolling for its second Summer Law Program.
"Summer Law at Monroe not only provides great classroom and extra-curricular experiences that prepare students for college, but it helps inspire their career interests in the legal profession," said Karenann Carty, Dean of Academics.
Classes in the Summer Law Program are taught by active lawyers who provide real-world insights. Students also attend real criminal trials, observe bookings and arraignments, and get a taste of college life by residing in dormitories on Monroe's New Rochelle campus, which is just a 30-minute train ride from midtown Manhattan.
Led by a former prosecutor, Program Director Michele Rodney, last year the Monroe College two-week summer law program proved to be an exciting and valuable learning experience.
"The enthusiasm that the students had for the mock trial was energizing," Professor Rodney recalled. "They applied what they learned in the classroom to the final mock trial. This reinforced the value of the experience for everyone involved."
The Monroe Summer Law program is being offered from August 12-24. For more information or to request an application, contact Dean Karenann Carty at 914-740-6429 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
