“This is a great opportunity to increase your knowledge and be better,” said Professor Phyllis Kotey. “As citizens, it’s important to know your rights and understand them.”
The main focus of the event was for the participants to gain a better understanding of their rights and with this knowledge become better citizens. Additionally, students learned about law school and a range of specific law specialties such as criminal law. Furthermore, current FIU Law students also provided insights and education to the participants throughout the day. Overall, the event saw about 600 middle and high school students joined the event.
