Law Camp Participants Learn About Legal System, Civil Rights

(NASHVILLE, June 8-12) — The TBA partnered with Lipscomb University for its annual Law Camp, held in Nashville June 8-12. Other Law Camp sponsors included the Napier-Looby Bar Association and law firm Bradley Arant Boult Cummings.

Each summer, Lipscomb University’s Institute for Law, Justice & Society hosts high school students from across the country to participate in a week-long residential camp that exposes them to various aspects of the legal profession. This year’s camp focused on the development of key freedoms and the concept of equality under the law, with a special focus on the Civil Rights Movement.

Law Camp events included a tour of the Tennessee Supreme Court and Nashville School of Law, lunch at the Tennessee Bar Center, and a reception with and presentation by veteran civil rights attorney Fred D. Gray. The week concluded with a Recognition Luncheon for program staff and volunteers, participants and their families.
