2021 Virtual Crump Law Camp

The National Bar Association—Virtual Crump Law Camp is designed to provide high school students between the ages of 14 and 17 (entering the ninth through the eleventh grades) with a thorough introduction to the American judicial and legal system.  The 2021 Virtual Camp will run for one week and will provide students with an introduction to law school, the skills that are required to become an effective lawyer, and a look at the many roles for lawyers in this country and abroad.  The Camp is intended to be fun and will offer an interesting and exciting academic and virtual tour agenda.

In addition to actual law school classes, there will be guest lectures and virtual field trips.  During the Camp, participants will be paired with law students, law professors and practicing attorneys, who will serve as mentors to whom the participants will be able to turn as they continue through high school, college, and law school.

More than 90 percent of this nation’s lawyers are white, as are more than 80 percent of the students enrolled in law school.  Yet, more than 30 percent of the United States is comprised of people of color.  Projections are that by the year 2050, more than half of the people of the country will be of color.  It is imperative that we begin now to direct students, while they are young, to seek careers in the legal profession.  Thus, there is need on the part of bar associations of color to “grow attorneys.”

If America is to become a true melting pot, the legal system must lead the way.  This can be done only when diverse groups of people bring their cultural, ethnic, and social backgrounds into the equation.  Therefore, although the camp will have an open enrollment policy and is available to all students, its emphasis is on empowering students of color.
