OUR OWN INSPIRING VOICE, LESLIE WRIGHT
Leslie Wright is unforgettable. If you have met her, you already know this. She has worked with CLREP since the summer of 2006, beginning as an assistant but navigating her way to Teen Court Coordinator, and now, Director of City Programs. As such, she manages Teen Court, Law Links and the City Council Page Program. In her nearly-eleven years with us, Leslie has made her mark on community members, youth, and families alike.
Having more than twenty five years' experience in the nonprofit sector, Leslie understands the importance of connections. She has great knowledge of community resources, and is quick to point someone in the right direction when they don't know where to turn. She is a huge advocate for Baltimore City youth, and believes very much in second chances.
We couldn't be more proud that she was acknowledged as a 2017 #InspiringVoice by Community Law in Action, and want to thank her for all she has done to strengthen our programs and our city. #YouRockLeslieWright.
SUMMER LAW ACADEMY TO FOCUS ON FORENSIC LAW
CLREP will debut a brand new program this summer - the Summer Law Academy - which will give Maryland students an up-close and comprehensive look at the use of forensic evidence in the law. Rising tenth, eleventh and twelfth graders will visit a forensics lab, take a trip to DC, meet with a homicide detective and meet attorneys from The Innocence Project, among a myriad of other activities. The Academy will run during the week of June 26 at The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. It is open to any student attending a Maryland school. Tuition is $300 and includes lunch each day; limited partial and full financial scholarships are available. Registrations will be accepted until we reach capacity.

YERTLE THE TURTLE IS A LAW DAY HIT!
While it may not have been critically acclaimed, there's no doubt that Yertle the Turtle was a smashing success for MSBA's and CLREP's 2017 Law Day Event, conducted in collaboration with the MSBA Public Awareness Committee, Port Discovery, and Jim MacAlister, lawyer and play writer.
Based on the 2017 Law Day theme of "The 14th Amendment: Transforming American Democracy," Yertle the Turtle proved an excellent reminder that no one - not even a King - is above the law.
