Summer Law Institute

The law school sponsored four Central High School Law and Government magnet students to attend the Summer Law Institute from June 15-20, an annual program for high school students interested in the law and legal profession. Tia Coleman, co-valedictorian of her graduating class, was among them. Ms. Coleman won the Justice McAnulty Essay contest for seniors and was also the overall winner. She plans to attend UofL in the fall.

The program, which is sponsored by the LBA, Brandeis School of Law, and Bellarmine University, provides students an opportunity to meet and interact with local attorneys, judges, and law professors. During the week-long camp, they learned the fundamentals of trial procedure, discussed important legal and social issues, and studied how the law affects their lives. They also participated in workshops, took trips to the Jefferson County Judicial Center and Bellarmine, and prepared and presented a mock trial.
