Climate Change Kid Lawyer Camp!
August 5, 2019 @ 8:30 am - August 9, 2019 @ 4:30 pm$449
This is a great opportunity for middle schoolers (grades 6-8) to learn about law by doing it – using the Juliana kid climate case, just argued by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, as a model. Young people can take parts as appellate lawyers for the kid plaintiffs or for the government defendants, or if they prefer they can choose media roles as reporters or photographers. Experienced practitioners will guide them through climate science, the federal government and justice systems, the interesting legal doctrines in this case, how to construct and deliver an argument, how to capture images for maximum impact and how to interview people and write articles. This is a fun and empowering way to learn how the legal process works from different perspectives. Scholarships are available through Saturday Academy.
