From Beyond the Billable: Spotlight on Law Day in the Schools Program

Are you interested in teaching Boston public school students about equality? Volunteer for the 2013 Law Day in the Schools Program on May 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. Lawyers can visit classrooms throughout city, teaching elementary, middle school and high school students about the 2013 ABA theme, “Realizing the Dream: Equality for All.” The BBA provides volunteers with all the written materials for the Program and you can volunteer in pairs.
