Journey to JD- Current Sophomore summer program

The Center for Legal Inclusiveness, a Denver-based nonprofit wanted to share with you the exciting news of a new pipeline initiative for current sophomore high school students interested in the law: Journey to JD (J2JD).

J2JD is a one-week residential program, June 24-30, 2018, at the University of Denver, for 20 diverse rising high school juniors in Colorado.  Students will gain a basic understanding of the legal system and empower them to explore the possibilities of a career in the law.

The camp will feature interactive and engaging learning opportunities:

  • Classroom discussion led by law school faculty, attorneys and law students, and
  • Field trips highlighting different careers and opportunities in the legal profession.

The application process is relatively easy.  Online, students may submit the application and other requested materials, and have a nonfamily member complete a recommendation form.  Alternatively, PDF copies are available to print and mail.  The deadline is March 31st.

Except for a $50 seat deposit (which may be waived), there is no cost for students to attend.  Housing, meals, field trips, local transportation and learning materials will be covered by the camp.

This program has the potential to make an impact in creating a more diverse and inclusive legal profession in Colorado.  But your help is needed.  Will you help me by promoting this opportunity to students in your organization?  And please feel free to share with other organizations to help disseminate this information.

Please direct them to our website, where they may complete their application.
