Wiggin and Dana Lawyers Participate in Third Annual L.A.W. Camp for Teens

July 30, 2014

Wiggin and Dana lawyers Jenny Chou, John Doroghazi, Christine Jean-Louis, Najia Khalid and Elisabeth Pimentel delivered a presentation on what it's like to be a lawyer on the final day of the third annual L.A.W. Camp program. In addition, Christine Jean-Louis also served as a mock trial coach during the program.

The L.A.W. Camp, which stands for Love to Learn, Apply Yourself, and Work for Justice, created for New Haven teens, was developed by Attorney Sung-Ho Hwang and Judge Angela Robinson. The program provides teens with the opportunity to learn about the legal profession through working with law students, law professors, law clerks, practicing lawyers, and judges, and included a series of workshops, panel discussions, and a mock trial. The teens were selected from the Amistad Academy and LEAP's Leaders-In-Training program.

The four-day program was held at various locations including Wiggin and Dana, Yale Law School, Quinnipiac University School of Law, Gateway Community College and the New Haven Superior Court.
