Law Day 4 Boys
We are pleased to announce that The Wright Legal Group, Fountain City Bar Association, and Master of My Fate Leadership and Mentoring Program are co-sponsoring the sixth annual Law Day 4 Boys 2018. The event will be held at the Government Center on June 20, 2018 from 9:00am – 2:00pm. Approximately 50 middle school boys from the Boys and Girls Club of Columbus/Phenix City and the YMCA will converge on the Government Center to have a real-world perspective on courthouse activities. The day will begin with a tour of the courthouse, including the following areas: State and Superior Court Clerk’s Office, Sheriff’s Office, Magistrate Court, Municipal Court Clerk's Office, Marshall’s Office, Probate Court, State Court Judges' Chambers, Superior Court Judges' Chambers, and the Mayor’s Office. The tour will be followed by a mini mock trial presentation, then a panel discussion during lunch on the Plaza Level. We will end the day career exploration by the Columbus Sheriff Department in which the boys will experience a drug and bomb dog demonstration as well as a look through of a SWAT truck and a police car.
“We are excited to be able to expose local boys to the inner working of law and government. Our theme is 'If you can see it, then you can be it.' We hope that we inspire the boys to consider law and give them insight into what it takes to reach their dreams.” Katonga L. Wright, Esq., Managing Partner of The Wright Legal Group, LLC and Past President and Current Philanthropy Chair of The Fountain City Bar Association. “It is amazing what a difference it can make when a child is able to see what they want to be. Pipeline programs like this are vital to making sure that we continue to develop local talent, and keep them grounded in our community.”
This is the seventh time the organizations have joined forces to host Law Day 4 Boys. They are looking forward to making this an annual event.
