Our goal of a more representative society has been driving our work to create a pipeline into the legal, legislative, and judicial fields for the underrepresented and underprivileged, with a focus on middle and high school girls. We do this by exposing the young ladies to successful lawyers, legislators, and judges through events, school-based programs (like mock trial and debate) and one-on-one interactions and mentorship.
Girls Rule the Law has been hosting school based programs including mock trial, law club, debate teams and Law Day. Our signature events includes an Annual Youth Conference which gathers about 350 young women (and men) to hear about how they can achieve their goals. Additionally, we host smaller gatherings and networking sessions at law schools, courthouses, and Bar Associations in the students’ regional area.
Serving mainly New York City at this time, our team actively reaches nearly 1,500 individuals per year via in-person events. Our social and digital platforms, as well as strong professional partnerships, ensures that our message reaches far beyond that!
