We are posting Summer Camp opportunities as they arise on our Columbus PACE Facebook page, so please “like” the page to get updates as they come in. https://www.facebook.com/columbuspace
Here are a few that have been shared with our group:
Open to current 8th grade students:
The Law and Leadership Institute is a statewide initiative that engages high school students from underserved communities in academic enrichment and legal career education throughout their four years of high school. Students enrolled in LLI attend class sessions on campus at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law and at Capital University Law School and six other law schools across the state. However, enrollment into the Institute only occurs the summer before 9th grade during the LLI Summer Institute.
2014 marks the 7th year of LLI in Columbus! The 2014 LLI Summer Institute will be held June 23th through July 25th from 9AM until 4PM. Transportation, food and supplies are FREE to participants and students can even earn up to $150 for successful completion of the Summer Institute. In addition to learning the law students will learn valuable study skills, public speaking skills and techniques to improve their reading and analytical thinking. Summer Institute participants meet legal professionals, take field trips and compete in a mock trial competition.
LLI will accept applications from current 8th grade students on a rolling basis NOW through Tuesday, April 15, 2014. In Columbus only, we will also accept 10 new 9th grade students into the Institute. Completed applications may be sent by mail to the LLI headquarters: (1700 Lake Shore Drive, Columbus, OH 43204), fax (614-485-3075) or email (lli [at] lawandleadership [dot] org). Applications will be reviewed as they are received, so we cannot guarantee that space will be available in April.
