The 12th Annual Youth Law Fair, hosted by the D.C. Superior Court and the D.C. Bar, brings cyberbullying and its harmful effects to the limelight this year. The annual fair brings lawyers, high school students, judges and educators together to examine local social and legal issues. Chief Judge Lee F. Satterfield, Judge Melvin Wright and D.C. Bar President Kim Keenan are among the participants slated to attend the daylong program.
The event also includes a mock trial, speaking sessions and raffle giveaways, providing local teens an opportunity to develop “hands on” experience with practicing law and understanding America’s judicial system.
Students will also receive breakfast and lunch, and participate in exhibits and tours of the courthouse and holding cells.
The 12th Annual Youth Law Fair takes place March 19, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., at the Moultrie Courthouse, 500 Indiana Courthouse, N.W. Free. For more information and to register, go to ezregister.com/events/1670 or visit dcbar.org/youthlawfair.
