Article from Pace Law School Newswire

The third annual Summer Justice Academy for Young Women hosted this week at Pace Law School was featured in the New York Law Journal and White Plains Patch.

The New York Law Journal on Friday ran a photograph of Judge La Tia W. Martin, who created and organizes the week-long immersion program to introduce under-served teenage girls to careers in law, with Judge Laura Jacobson, one of the speakers, and several of the students.

White Plains Patch published a feature story on the program. According to the article:

“It offers an opportunity for female high school students, some who are minorities and come from disadvantaged backgrounds, to attend a weeklong series of seminars that give background on the legal profession. The girls are primarily from Westchester, with some from the Bronx and other boroughs.

Some of the topics include criminal, matrimonial and health —along with laws geared to addressing domestic violence and cyber bullying. The week will be capped off Monday with a special trip to Washington, D.C. that includes visits to the Capitol, Supreme Court and, if possible, the White House.

Those who serve the legal profession—ranging from women judges, lawyers and Pace Law School professors—all have donated their time to the program.”
