MYLAW: Maryland Youth & the Law

The success of MY Mock Trial program is heavily dependent upon volunteer attorneys and judges who coach teams, and score competitions at local, regional, semi-final and final levels. Each year, several hundred attorneys, masters and judges across the state volunteer thousands of hours for this program.

Teachers, courthouse personnel, and many others across the state are also part of this incredible network of volunteers who help this program run efficiently throughout the season.

Volunteer opportunities are flexible and convenient. Mock Trial runs throughout the state, in virtually every county. If your time is limited, and you would enjoy judging a competition, it's an easy way to give 2-3 hours of your time without further obligations. If you have more time, on a consistent basis, then you may enjoy coaching one of our teams. We will work with you to ensure we find the perfect volunteer opportunity!

Mission Statement

MYLAW is building the next generation of civic-minded citizens through unique programs and experiences that hone important life skills, such as communication, critical thinking and problem solving. Through Mock Trial, Law Links, Teen Court, City Council Page Program, Moot Court, and Law Academy, we help prepare youth for college and career pathways. MYLAW is considered the educational arm of the Maryland State Bar Association yet maintains nonprofit 501c3 status

Description

Since its inception in 1999, the MY Baltimore City Teen Court has adjudicated over 2,500 young people through restorative justice practices as an educational and transformative alternative to the traditional "system" of juvenile justice. Since its initiation in 1983, the MY High School Mock Trial Competition has grown from 5 to nearly 150 teams statewide which compete for the 'State Champion" title each year. The MY Law Links Internship program offers rising Baltimore City juniors and seniors paid, seven-week experiences within various legal offices, courts, and organizations; participants are given the chance to learn about legal professions hands-on and add valuable experience to their resume. Other programs that MYLAW offers include the MY Summer Law Academy, MY Moot Court Competition, and MY Baltimore City Council Page Program.
