Great opportunity for high school students interested in Law, Criminal Justice, Native Hawaiian Rights, Developing leadership skills, Civic Education. The application deadline is August 31, 2022 and the Law & Justice Academy will take place October 4-6, 2022 (fall break for public school students). There are 20 openings for Maui County students. The purpose of this three-day Academy is to introduce high school students to issues of law and justice; build student's skills in discussion, debate, analysis, and advocacy; and provide students with tools and inspiration to become active and involved citizens of their communities. To this end, a curriculum has been created that is unique to the Maui community. Another goal of the program is to increase interest in college, law school, and legally related careers among young people who come from backgrounds and populations that are traditionally underrepresented among attorneys, judges, and political decision makers. Community leaders from across Hawai'i will be working with and mentoring participants in the Academy.Interested students can apply at the following webpage:forms.gle/fkuzcdH2RhfrWTLE6 ...
