About the Program

Every spring, join lawyers and judges from all over the city to visit classes across the Boston Public School system as part of Law Day. Last year, our volunteers reached over 750 students through the BBA Program. It is a great way for BBA members to engage with Boston Public School students and share their passion for the law.

By participating in Law Day you will work with students directly. Take your own classroom or be paired up with another lawyer. Students that participate in the Program range from first graders to high school seniors. The schools are located within the 21 different neighborhoods of Boston and draw a student population composed of diverse backgrounds.

Time Commitment

The total time commitment, including training, classroom preparation, and classroom time averages 3-5 hours.

Requirements for Volunteering

  • Volunteers must be attorneys.
  • The BBA supplies all necessary materials and recommends appropriate activities.
