Law Day 2017

About 350 high school students visited with the EDMI Chapter on May 1, 2017, and learned about the work of the Court and the many federal and state agencies that are involved in the justice system.

The students attended a presentation by two USCIS representatives who talked about their work and current issues in immigration law. There were representatives from more than 25 federal agencies and a handful of state agencies who met with students face-to-face to tell them about the role their respective agencies play in the justice system. The students also enjoyed spending time in our beautiful Million Dollar Courtroom, where they learned about the room's history and were able to engage with law clerks, judges, Pretrial Services officers, as well as attorneys who practice in our Court. Chief Judge Hood and Magistrate Judge Stafford met with a group of students in the Chief Judge's chambers. It was clear that all of these experiences made an impact on the students and will inspire them to learn more about the justice system.

And of course, everyone enjoyed the customary Law Day fare of hot dogs, chips and cookies!
