The LCLC Court Advocacy Apprenticeship is a joint legal education and job readiness training program. Through this program youth learn about all aspects of the criminal justice system, develop critical thinking and communication skills, analyze real-life cases and issues, and take on all the roles involved in a moot court or mock trial presentation.
Support the 2016 Court Advocacy Apprenticeship team at one of our upcoming Mock Trial Performances.

Youth Scholarship Fund
The LCLC Youth Scholarship Fund is awarded to minority youth who have overcome the challenges of going through the criminal justice system to become stronger persons determined to realize their full potential in a college or vocational training setting. We believe in the value and potential of these future leaders and are committed to their academic and personal success in college.
