After-School Programs

  • After-School Programs
For Students, Teachers, and Legal Mentors

Discovering Justice After-School Programs connect Massachusetts students with the legal community to explore the judicial system, learn case analysis and development, and practice the civic skills needed to persuasively convey their views and engage in our democracy as active citizens. Guided by legal partners and volunteer attorneys in our Mock Trial and Mock Appeal Programs, students engage in legal analysis, grapple with real constitutional issues, and practice developing legal arguments.
