FOURTH ANNUAL WHITE COAT CEREMONY
LAW SCHOOL HOSTS LEGAL INSTITUTE FOR LOCAL STUDENTS
”Much of what young people know about our judicial
system they learn from television, which can be quite
distorted. This program helps demystify what attorneys
really do and how our court system really works. It’s an
eye opening experience for many of these young students.”
—ERIC GOUVIN, DEAN, WESTERN NEW ENGLAND UNIVERSITY
SCHOOL OF LAW
Western New England University
School of Law partnered with
MassMutual Financial Group and the
Just the Beginning Foundation to bring
the Summer Legal Institute to western
Massachusetts for a second year.
Forty high school students from throughout
greater Springfield participated in the week-long institute. The program involves a
curriculum that is highly interactive and fun.
Program activities are designed to motivate
and encourage students on a path toward
academic and personal success while
immersing them in many aspects of the
legal and judicial systems.
At the end of the week, the students’ families
joined them for a ceremony in which
students were awarded certificates and
prizes for their accomplishments and their
mock-trial performances in the courtroom.
