Supporting Our Communities

  • Attorneys and staff took their legal knowledge to the classroom once again on March 6 in their second Lawyers in the Classroom session at LEARN Hunter Perkins charter school located on 1700 W. 83rd Street in Chicago. Students in sixth through eighth grades reviewed situational scenarios to create a deeper understanding of legal topics including limits of rights in the Bill of Rights.  

    LEARN Charter School Network consists of 10 elementary schools serving over 4,000 child scholars with strong academic results and it has proven methods that meet the needs of the whole child: physically, emotionally and spiritually. LEARN Charter School partnered with The National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms and the Constitutional Rights Foundation to hold the program at the LEARN Hunter Perkins campus.
