on December 21, 2014
De Anza High School’s three-year-old law academy brings in practicing Bay Area lawyers to give students a real-life view of the legal world. Local district attorneys visit the classroom to mentor students and provide legal insights. The program is designed to give students a head start on a legal career, and it has already made an impact, with several students saying they intend to pursue legal studies.
Juana Parra is a student at De Anza and is enrolled in the Law Academy. She hopes to be a lawyer in the future.
