LAW Camp, which stands for Love to Learn, Apply Yourself, and Work for Justice, was created for New Haven teens, by Attorney Sung-ho Hwang and Judge Angela Robinson. The program provides teens with the opportunity to learn about the legal profession by working with law students, law professors, law clerks, practicing lawyers and judges, and includes a series of workshops, panel discussions and a mock trial. The teens are selected from LEAP’s Leaders-In-Training program.
