Children & Youth Advocacy Clinic Hosts Stevens Academy

March 30, 2015


On March 26, the Children and Youth Advocacy Clinic hosted students from Stevens Center for Academic Development, a middle school in the St. Louis Public School District. The relationship between the two schools began this fall to support the Youth Court program. Children and Youth Advocacy students, along with Assistant Professor Trish Harrison, attend Youth Court every week to serve as mentors to the middle schoolers. Stevens students are referred to youth court if they violate the student code of conduct. As an alternative to suspension, Stevens students act as attorneys for both the school and the student who received the disciplinary infraction. The attorneys advocate to a jury of student peers who decides the outcome.

SLU LAW 4L dual-degree student Srishti Miglani, who is working at Stevens this semester with  3L Justin Arnold, organized a morning for Stevens students to come to SLU LAW and experience what law school is really like. SLU LAW professors Aaron Taylor, Lisa Taylor and Cora Walker met with students to discuss their journey through higher education. A tour was taken, followed by a class taught by Professor Harrison. Finally, the students enjoyed lunch with a panel of Black Law Student Association students who discussed the ins and outs of law school.
