The Youth Law Conference is a one-day event that educates high school juniors and seniors about career options in the legal profession, the general legal process, provides tools for better decision-making, and features a variety of legal issues as they pertain to the students. By tailoring this program to the interests and issues of a teen audience, the OCBA and its volunteer attorneys deliver an engaging program that is a hit with students and teachers alike.
This year the Law Related Education committee has secured Shannon Smith, counsel for Larry Nassar, as the keynote speaker. Other seminar topics include cyberspace minefields, immigration law, FBI opportunities and K-9s in the criminal justice system.
The OCBA has allocated funds for those schools whose budgets will not support transportation costs. Funding for buses traveling in Oakland County may be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
