This panel features four excellent curriculum partner organizations that work with law firm and law student volunteers at middle and high school schools throughout the District to teach law to students, develop their advocacy skills, promote democratic engagement, and grow future civic leaders:
- Charisma Howell, Georgetown University Law Center’s Street Law Program and Mock Trial
- Camille Thompson, Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project and Moot Court at American University’s Washington College of Law
- Robyn Lingo, Mikva Challenge: Participatory Civics Education – “Democracy is a Verb!”
- David Trigaux, Washington Urban Debate League, focusing on Title I School students
Kent Withycombe, Director of the Washington Lawyers’ Committee Public Education Project, will moderate the session and discuss how you and your law firm, law school, company, or government agency can get involved.
