High Schoolers Will Preview the Legal Profession at ‘Future Lawyers Day’

Several area high school students will participate in a special hands-on event that will enable them to see what lawyers do and how they do it at Future Lawyers Day: A Look at the Legal Profession.

Hosted by the Duquesne University School of Law, Future Lawyers Day will provide the students the opportunity to tackle legal issues themselves using a problem based on cyberbullying.

The event is designed to engage participants in activities that will encourage their ideas and questions about applying to college and consideration of a legal career.

Participants include students from the Fund for Advancement of Minorities Through Education; Propel Braddock Hills High School; Propel Andrew Street High School; and Imani Christian Academy.
