Q. What if I don’t want to be an attorney? Can I still be in the Academy if I'm not interested in law?
A. The Academy of Law is primarily focused on educating students about the law, government and careers in the legal field and it helps if you are interested in those topics as well. We believe that knowing your constitutional rights and how the legal system works is essential information every student should have, regardless of whether you want to be an attorney. There are many career opportunities in the legal field other than being an attorney. We want students who are interested in learning, working hard and potentially going to college.
