Support 2017 Law Camp

$7,500 goal

Campaign created 10 months ago
Each year, the Loudoun County and Fauquier County Bar Associations in Virginia sponsor the Thomas D. Horne Leadership in the Law Program, also known as Law Camp, for twenty-four students from public and private high schools within the two counties.  The students spend a week at camp and the program provides them with a unique opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge about the legal system. They work with local judges, lawyers, law clerks, and other legal professionals with a focus on the practice of criminal and civil law. On the last day of camp, the students participate in a mock trial and take on the role of lawyers as a local Circuit Court Judge presides over the trial.

There is no cost to the students or their parents for them to participate in the program. All expenses for the camp facility, meals, supplies, and transportation are provided through generous donations and fundraising events. Local attorneys and other law professionals donate their time to provide the students with hands-on instruction as they prepare them for their mock trial on the final day of camp. Learning about the law can be intense, so the students also get some downtime to unwind and participate in recreational activities. In the past, those activities included soccer, volleyball, and salsa dancing. It’s a very unique experience for the participants and by the end of the week, many of the students form life-long friendships.

This year, the Law Camp organizers have made it easier for local law firms, businesses, and individuals to donate by setting up this GoFundMe campaign. Your donation, no matter how large or small, is greatly appreciated and will go a long way toward funding the program and providing the students with everything they need to learn about the law and, to create memories of lifetime.
