Now in its 9th year, the Law and Youth offers an opportunity for youth to meet up with those who administer the law and discover how it works, and especially how youth can make better choices when engaged with the law. Registrants will learn what youth can do to help themselves, and what they need to know to help themselves when in a vulnerable situation involving the law.

Led by actress Kate Trotter and author, family and children’s lawyer Jeffery Wilson, the one-day workshop includes a team of dedicated lawyers and judges who are there to work with the registrants and enable direct interaction in various workshops and simulated exercises.
