Volunteer for the 2017 Girl Scout Law Day


The MWL Community Action and Advocacy Committee is pleased to present the 11th annual Girl Scout Law Day on the morning of Saturday, November 18, 2017.

This very popular event provides girls in grades 3-5 with an empowering perspective on careers in the law through exceptional speakers, activities, and a mock trial. Topics include a day in the life of a police officer, how a bill becomes a law, and careers in law. The morning event concludes with a mock criminal trial involving relevant pop culture icons and the girls role playing with the assistance of a local judge, prosecutor, and public defender.
