Journey to JD is an immersion program that offers diverse Colorado high school students an interactive experience with the legal profession. This initiative is a one-week residential program, hosted at the University of Denver, for twenty diverse rising high school juniors.
While residing on-campus, students will have a first look at the scope and reach of the legal profession through a multi-faceted program that includes:
· a week-long real classroom experiences led by law school faculty
· a series of field-trips to gain exposure to different careers in the legal profession
· a final presentation by the students on their experience in the program.
And the journey doesn't end there. Following completion of this engaging experience, students will continue to be supported, mentored, and encouraged to attend college, and, ultimately, law school, to pursue legal opportunities in the region.
While the program costs are approximately $1,500 per student, we are committed to ensuring that costs do not create a hardship for our students. Your gift today, no matter how big or small, will support a student as they begin their Journey to their JD.
