ConnectED

ConnectED is a fun and educational virtual program designed to introduce high school students to the legal field. Students will hear the stories of federal judges and their journey to the bench, take a virtual courthouse tour, learn what it takes to become a law student, discuss current legal topics, and participate in workshops that build legal skills. Get ConnectED!

The program is over 5 days with 4 live one-hour Zoom sessions. Students are expected to complete an additional one or two hours of pre-recorded content on JTB University (online learning platform) each day. Students are tasked with meeting each other virtually in small groups throughout the week for discussion and engagement. The program culminates with a social justice project.

The program is virtual and FREE to all students. To participate, you will need a computer with video and mic capabilities and access to the internet. 

The ConnectEd application is still open! Click here to access the application.
