Youth Law Fair

Youth Law Fair 2014

Racial profiling. Sexting. Bullying. Drugs and alcohol. Each year the Youth Law Fair tackles the most current issues of the day while providing Washington D.C.-area high school students hands-on experience with various aspects of the law.

The 18th annual Youth Law Fair is no different. On Saturday, March 18, hundreds of teens will gather at the D.C. Superior Court for this free educational event, and examine this year's theme, "OMG! I Thought I Deleted This!" Attendees will look at how social media profiles, pictures, and posts never really go away. They will be joined by attorneys, judges, educators, and community leaders during speak-out sessions aimed at starting a conversation about relevant, topical legal issues. 

Inside the courtrooms, students will be guided by volunteer attorneys as they present fictionalized cases during mock trials, acting as defense attorneys, prosecutors, jurors, judges, or witnesses. D.C. Superior Court judges will also be on hand to lead courtroom and holding cell tours, as well as to offer an inside look at the judicial system and established laws in the community.
