Melvin R. Wright Youth Law Fair

March 18, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT

Join the D.C. Superior Court and D.C. Bar for the 24th Annual Melvin R. Wright Youth Law Fair on Saturday, March 18, 2023. This year’s event will feature a day of mock trials, Speak Out! sessions, and lunch, plus a tour of courtrooms. During the mock trial, students led by licensed attorneys will present a fictionalized case, acting as defense attorneys, prosecutors, jurors, judges, or witnesses.

Special guest speakers and volunteers from the D.C. Bar and D.C. Superior Court will provide an insider’s view of the judicial system. This year’s program “Don’t Get Caught Up: Criminal Conspiracy” is not to be missed!

This event is completely FREE and open to students in grades 9 through 12.
