Southern Law Students Mentor High School Youth Through New Program Initiative

Feb. 29 2016

The Southern Law Youth Network is a program that provides local high school students from across the area the opportunity to experience the learning stages of the legal profession. The program aims to help students obtain a clear vision of what the legal profession has to offer, and help them to create a road map of how to pursue a legal career. The program emphasizes three parts: (1) School visits from current law students to local area high schools; (2) a comprehensive and creative essay contest; (3) and an awards ceremony and convocation.

During the spring 2016 semester, the program will have serviced at least 6 local area high schools, including Tara High, Glen Oaks High, Madison Prep, SU Lab, McKinley High and Baton Rouge High. The SLYN speakers facilitated conversations regarding college readiness, life after high school, community service, getting into law school, and more. Finally, through its partnerships and fundraising initiatives, the SLYN program was able to raise funds to donate 3 scholarship opportunities to three distinctly deserving high school students that will have participated in this program. The winners of these scholarships are to be announced later this semester. SLYN Newsletter Week 1
