The Harlan Institute is recruiting attorneys and law students who wish to volunteer as virtual mentors for a High School class.
All interactions with the class will be electronic, primarily through 45-minute sessions on HARLANconnect via Skype. During these sessions, the mentor explores a case currently pending before the Supreme Court, and helps the students understand the facts and legal issues. We provide lesson plans and other materials to the students in advance, so they should be familiar with the case prior to the session.
This is a great and easy way to give back to the community, and may satisfy pro bono or service requirements.
If you are interested in mentoring, please email us at info@HarlanInstitute.org. We make every effort to match a mentor with the type of class requested–location, grade, etc.
