Stand Up For Your Rights Showcase

  • Moakley Courthouse One Courthouse Way Boston, MA 02122 United States (map)

Join us at Moakley Courthouse!

Since February, Citizen Schools & Discovering Justice have partnered with law firms across Boston to transform conference rooms & courtrooms into classrooms where volunteer attorneys teach middle school students the ins and outs of the law, as they prepare for their trials.

On May 24th, students will put their learning to the test as they present their cases in front of a real judge, family members, and civic leaders.

5:00-5:40 Arrival and Judges/Juror Reception

5:40-6:00 Opening Remarks & Transition to Courtrooms

Additional Details & Getting There: Please bring a photo ID to pass through security.
