Youth Law Fair

Youth Law Fair 2014

Each year, the Youth Law Fair offers a free daylong educational event that tackles the most current legal issues facing local students. Past topics include social media use, bullying, and racial profiling. The high school students are introduced to a hands-on experience within various aspects of the law through a mock trial and exhibition hall. During the mock trial, students led by licensed attorneys will present a fictionalized case, acting as defense attorneys, prosecutors, jurors, judges, or witnesses.

Established in 2000, the Youth Law Fair provides an opportunity for the local students to have a positive experience with the legal community. In partnership with local community organizations, educators, and like-minded students, the day encourages an expanded view of the judicial system, introduction to community resources, and pursuit of higher education.

This year, we celebrate the 20th anniversary of this award-winning event! The day will include activities such as courthouse tours led by DC Superior Court judges, a mock trial in the courtroom led by attorneys, showcase of local organizations, catered lunch and raffle prizes! We are also excited to announce that this year’s key note speaker is first-ever elected Attorney General of the District of Columbia, Karl A. Racine.
