LAW Camp for Teens Extends Application Deadline to May 31!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a lawyer?
Do you want to argue a case in front of a judge?
Are you just interested in learning more about the law?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, apply to LAW Camp for Teens!

LAW Camp for Teens is a one-week summer camp sponsored by the Connecticut Bar Association that offers high school students a unique opportunity to learn about the legal profession alongside legal professionals. During the camp, the courtroom and law firms become your classroom as you assume the roles of trial attorney and witnesses to battle for justice. Work hand-in-hand with practicing attorneys and law students as you prepare a criminal case. You and your team will prepare and try a case in a real courtroom in front of a real Connecticut judge. Guilty or innocent, prosecution or defense, you and your teammates affect the outcome and your performance will determine the fate of the accused!

LAW Camp is free to attend. Breakfast and lunch are provided.

Since space is limited, you must be willing to commit to attend all five days of the camp for the full camp day.
