Attorney Laurel Black Rector, founder of the Law Office of Laurel Black Rector, is participating in the Girl Scouts Project Law Track, a series of four sessions focusing on a different facet of the practice of law and preparing the Girl Scouts to participate in a mock trial. “This is a wonderful opportunity for young women of all backgrounds to learn about various careers in law and to be mentored by women attorneys in varying areas of practice,” said Rector.
Project Law Track is put on by the Chicago Bar association. In the last of the four sessions, the Girl Scouts (many of whom are from non-affluent neighborhoods in Chicago) put on a mock trial at the federal courthouse in Chicago on March 18. The group of participating attorneys made presentations to the students about the law and law careers, and worked with the students on their part of the trial. One or two attorneys are paired with one Scout.
