The Youth Law Academy

The Youth Law Academy

The Youth Law Academy is a three year program for Oakland high school students to help them build their confidence and understanding of the path to college. Recognizing the need for more diversity in the legal profession we ultimately hope to inspire our students to seek a career in the law for the betterment of our community.

During this program they learn about the legal system, participate in a mock trial, participate in ethnic studies in the law seminars, are introduced to critical issues and injustices in the legal system, and receive a free SAT preparation course and college and financial aid advising. After their three years in the program we also provide support to them as they embark into their college years.

Diversity Legal Pipeline

The Diversity Legal Pipeline is an intensive, week long pre-law bootcamp that introduces students to the law school application process and puts them face to face with law students, lawyers, and judges who help inspire them to know that a legal education is within their reach.
