2012 LSBA and JTBF Suit Up for the Future High School Summer Legal Institute and Internship Program
The Louisiana State Bar Association in partnership with the Just the Beginning Foundation has had another outstanding High School Summer Legal Institute and Internship Program.
This program hosted rising high school juniors and seniors. Students participated in a three (3) week legal institute and internship from June 11, 2012 to June 29, 2012, at the Louisiana Bar Center (601 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans, LA) as well as participating New Orleans area firms, agencies, and courts.
Within the three week program, students received the opportunity to broaden their view of the legal profession, alongside learning a variety of lessons taught only in law school itself. Throughout the program, students were taught law school lessons by several law school professors, greeted by practicing and non-practicing lawyers, general counsels, law students, judges, and several inspirational speakers.
The LSBA and the Just the Beginning Foundation give special thanks to the attorneys and entities that provided funding to allow the student participants to receive stipends for their efforts:
Val P. Exnicios (Liska, Exnicios & Nungesser)
Marcus R. Patillo (Patillo Law Firm)
