Law students plan and implement a mock trial course at the high school. The goal is to eventually prepare the students to compete in the Philadelphia high school tournament.
Law students attend Boys’ Latin biweekly to teach students about current controversial legal issues and moderate a dynamic debate in an effort to increase the students’ oral advocacy skills.
Law students supervise and advise the Boys’ Latin Student Government, while providing the students with a foundation for understanding government and politics’ role in society.
Law students will research and develop a new dispute resolution program at Boys’ Latin by identifying effective restorative justice models in the Philadelphia area. The goal is to ultimately implement a teen-led dispute resolution program at the high school.
Clinical Referral Night
Law students refer high school students’ parents to various legal services around Philadelphia during Back to School Night. LEP introduces the parents to the various Penn Law clinics, which provide free legal services to low-income clients, and also provides contact information of other resources in the Philadelphia area for help with legal problems.
Marshall Brennan (MB) & Urban Ventures Project (UVP)
Law students introduce Penn Law’s MB and UVP pro bono projects to the Boys’ Latin curriculum. LEP serves as the liaison between Boys’ Latin and both MB and UVP, but the programming remains under the control of those groups, respectively.
