Recently, our older students have been able to visit with local professionals to hear about various jobs, earning potential, and the education required. It has been very fun to watch kids 'light up' as they realize they could be paid to do something they are interested in!
One of those recent trips toured a law firm. The students received a tour of the offices, and heard about the many areas in which one could practice law, the education and litigation processes and the range of earning potential. The students also did a good job of asking their own questions.
It was a wonderful experience with a promise from the Attorney: a visit to observe an actual court proceeding and a tour of the court house!
