Rising 9th Graders interested in learning about the law for 5 weeks this summer can do so with Inspired Leader for ABSOLUTELY NO COST!!
IStudents will begin the summer by gaining an introduction to law and then diving into the different aspects of criminal law. By the end of the summer students will prepare and conduct their own mock trial in front of parents, professors, lawyers, judges and other professionals.
Classes are team taught by current law students from different universities in the Miami, Florida region and overseen by President of Inspired Leaders, Roshni Phalgoo, JD. During the first two summers, students use the Street Law textbook (Glencoe, 2004) as their primary source of information and case studies. Teachers supplement the textbook information with real life cases and hands-on activities. Both 3rd and 4th year students engage in an enhanced curriculum in order to build upon their skill sets and engage in more in-depth conversations concerning the law and the community at large. Students become stronger community leaders and better educated on how society works as they pursue well-defined career goals and strengthen leadership aspirations.
