Law Academy - Celebrating 25 Years
Twenty-five years ago, the Bar Association of San Francisco launched the Law Academy to introduce high school students to the legal system and attorneys in their community. Today, students can select Law Academy as their "pathway" - like a mini-major - for their junior and senior years, learning about the legal system and their rights, and working with practicing attorneys and judges on their skills.
Jonathan Harriman has served as a mentor and teacher for Law Academy Students at Balboa High School for the past 13 years.
Below is an excellent article by Kathleen Guthrie Woods on the history of the Law Academy and its impact on students over the past twenty-five years.
