Integrate a Choose Law discussion into your community or school

Program encourages students to consider a legal career; emphasizes diversity in the law

Originally conceived by the Young Lawyers Division of the American Bar Association, Choose Law is designed to encourage middle and high-school aged students - especially students of color - to "be the change" they wish to see in the future by considering a career in the law. Students are shown a brief video presentation that serves as a springboard for a discussion moderated by legal professionals about law careers and the importance of diversity in the legal profession.

 

Professionals in all areas of the legal field are needed as presenters in the program. As a presenter, you may work alone, or as part of a panel, to facilitate a Choose Law discussion with a group of young people.

For more information about bringing a Choose Law discussion to your community, or details about how to volunteer, contact the Community Services Department at (617) 338-0695, or [e-mail communityservices].
