Alaya (St. Ursula Academy) and Keshawn (Maumee High School) are second year interns of the Law and Leadership Institute, a long-term, intensive program designed to diversify the legal profession and make it more representative of the society in which we live.
The internship program is designed to provide rising sophomores with real experience in the world of law. An internship is the prize offered to students who have put in the time and effort to complete five weeks of classes the summer after eighth grade, had the discipline to spend Saturdays during the school year continuing the work started in the summer, and made the continued commitment to attend classes for three weeks prior to the start of the internship.
Alaya and Keshawn spent four days with RCO attending various events including oral arguments at the Sixth District Court of Appeals, presentations by judges and prosecutors, and a tour of the jail.
