The Law and Government Magnet program was established at Central High School in 1986.  Partnerships with the Louisville Bar Association (beginning in 1992) and the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law (beginning in 2001) have built on the success of the program.  Students in the program now serve in summer internships facilitated by the LBA and are taught substantive law and writing skills related to law by law students from the Brandeis School of Law.  Central students have participated in national court competitions through the program and two students placed first and second nationally in 2011.  In recognition of the success of the program, the Jefferson County Public School System has renovated the law and government magnet classroom to create a moot court space.  The new configuration will allow students to practice courtroom skills and to apply what they are learning in that setting.  The classroom will be dedicated on March 25, 2014, at 11:00 am at Central High School.  Superintendent Donna Hargens will cut the ribbon at the event.  Fred Moore is the first Central student to participate in the program developed by the Brandeis School of Law to receive a law degree.  He is now an attorney in the Public Defender’s Office and he will deliver remarks on this special occasion.  Everyone who has been involved with the Central Partnership is encouraged to attend.
