The 15 high school participants with their seven law student coaches

In a supplement to high school civics, the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa William S. Richardson School of Law will host 15 students from seven high schools, June 6–10, for the Law and Justice Summer Program. The program features hands-on learning, including a mock trial, that will introduce the students to the possibilities of a future legal education.

The student participants come from Campbell, Farrington, Kailua, McKinley, Waiʻanae and Waipahu high schools, and University Laboratory School.

“It’s geared for rising 11th and 12th grade students, because this program could have an impact on their aspirations and college choices,” said Associate Faculty Specialist Liam Skilling, director of the Evening Part Time Program and Academic Success Program. “It provides engaging civics education that may be absent from the normal high school curriculum.”

This is the second summer that the UH Mānoa law school has offered the free Law and Justice Summer Program, helping to prepare high school juniors and seniors for deciding about college, as well as increasing their understanding of the legal system.
