This summer marked the fourth year our firm has hosted local high school students for a one week program offering an introduction to careers in law. Once again, a great group of high achieving students came together to learn about topics ranging from civil procedure to criminal law.

Here are some photos taken during the 2016 Intro to Careers in Law Program:
