Highlighting Our Law Academies and Students

Your Voice, Your Vote

Students will introduce their law respective academies, sharing highlights about their academy programs and accomplishments. We look forward to building camaraderie among our law academy teachers, students and volunteers, enhancing ongoing partnerships and collaborations.

Celebrating Law Day

The American Bar Association has selected “Voices of Democracy” as the Law Day Theme:

“The 2024 Law Day theme “Voices of Democracy” recognizes that in democracies, the people rule. . . [and] encourages Americans to participate in the 2024 elections by deepening their understanding of the electoral process; discussing issues in honest and civil ways; turning out to vote; and, finally, helping to move the country forward after free and fair elections. In this way, Americans ensure that our government remains responsive to the wishes of the people. We invite all Americans to join us on May 1, 2024, to celebrate Law Day by lifting their voices to strengthen our democracy.”

We will lend our “STUDENT VOICES” to the celebration by featuring our law academy students sharing their thoughts about our democracy and the rule of law in response to the following questions:

  • Q: How would you DEFINE/DESCRIBE our democracy?
  • Q: Why is it IMPORTANT TO PROTECT our democracy?
  • Q: HOW CAN WE protect and support our democracy?

Speakers:

  • Jeremy M. Evans, President, California Lawyers Foundation
  • Chalak Richards Guinses, Moderator (CLPC Board Member; Dean of Students, Belonging and Career Development, Pepperdine University Caruso School of Law)
  • Judge Fumiko Wasserman (CLPC Board Member; Los Angeles County Superior Court)
  • Carlos Garcia (CLPC Board Member; Law Academy Coordinator, Florin High School)
