Stephanie Tubbs Jones Summer Legal Academy

This program is coordinated by a collaboration including the CMBA, Norman S. Minor Bar Association, Case Western Reserve University School of Law and Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. Minority high school students from schools throughout Cuyahoga County are provided the opportunity to participate in this summer program, combining academic and work experiences.

At the Academy, area high school students participate in a two-week, full-day intensive law institute.  The Academy presents a case and takes students through the discovery, interview process, and development of both the prosecution and defense sides of the case, and culminates in a Mock Trial experience, under the supervision of lawyers and judges.  Additionally, students have the opportunity to earn a one month part-time internship and a small stipend. The top student in the program is rewarded with a scholarship.

The 2015 Academy will mark the 11th year of the program and will take place weekdays from Monday, June 15 through Friday, June 26, 2015.
