Event Details

Join us at Moakley Courthouse!

Since September, Citizen Schools & Discovering Justice have partnered with law firms across Boston & Chelsea to transform conference rooms & courtrooms into classrooms where volunteer attorneys teach middle school students the ins and outs of the law, as they prepare for their trials.


On December 12th, students will put their learning to the test as they present their cases in front of a real judge, family members, and civic leaders.
