Middle school students visit Georgia Law - 10/26/15
On Oct. 26, 2015, students from W.R. Coile Middle School experienced what it is like to be law students at Georgia Law in addition to getting the chance to act as attorneys.
As a part of the law school’s outreach efforts, a group of 17 seventh and eighth grade boys were given a tour of the law school where they gained first-hand knowledge of Georgia Law. The students were accompanied by Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Lori A. Ringhand and Executive Director of Admissions & Diversity Programs Gregory L. Roseboro, who both discussed the importance of law and its role in the history of the United States.
The young men were also able to participate in a moot court activity in the Hatton Lovejoy Courtroom, where they were split into two teams and given an issue to argue.
The purpose of the outreach program is to expose young students to the study of law and the legal profession with the goal of sparking their interest in law. This initiative has been in place for several years, and similar programs exist for high school students as well.
