LAW DAY 2012




Bronx Community Solutions conducted it's first every, and quiet ambitious.... two- day event to celebrate LAW DAY. This year's theme was "No Courts, No Justice, and No Freedom through the eyes of women." In this event, we chose to explore how courts play an integral role in society and how women help facilitate that every day.

Over 100 middle school age kids attended, they were all given the opportunity to speak with key court players, and a few even had one-on-one time/break-out sessions with judges, assistant district attorneys and the Bronx defense bar.

Bronx youth toured both the Bronx criminal and supreme courts, spent time in the holding cells participated in panel discussions and final had break out sessions with officers, attorneys and judges.
The favorite part of the day's vent was the end- not because it was over but because one of our guest, the Honorable Judge Scherzer asked for 10 more minutes with her group.
