Choose Law

Choose Law encouraged individuals of color to become attorneys. Through projects, Students learned about the importance of the legal profession and how the law affects all aspects of their lives. The project also taught students that attorneys of color have played a crucial role in the development of this noble profession. Finally, Choose Law shares the wonderful and diverse opportunities available for individuals pursuing a legal career and lays the path for which to get started.

Choose Law was for career day seminars, for guidance counselors, for social study classes, or for programs designed to educate students about the practice of law and to encourage them to consider becoming attorneys. Educators and counselors could use the video and written materials as a stand-alone project or as a supplement to similar local programs, such as programs where a local attorney or judge speaks to high school students about the practice of law. You could modify the project to suit your needs. Choose Law could be presented in fifteen minutes or an hour depending on what worked best.
