Thirty high school-age Boy Scouts from 12 troops of the Chicago Area Council earned their “Law” merit badge upon completing a day-long clinic offered by NESA CHICAGO (the Chicago Chapter of the National Eagle Scout Association) at the Circuit Court of Cook County’s Daley Center on January 21, 2012. The faculty was comprised of judges and attorneys from various backgrounds around Chicago, each of which are Eagle Scouts, including Howard L. Huntington (partner at Williams Montgomery & John) and Benjamin M. Whipple (associate at Williams Montgomery & John). The youths concluded the day and completed their badge requirements by participating in mock trial exercises in an actual courtroom. NESA CHICAGO serves as both a social networking group for Eagle Scouts as well as a service organization to support Scouting in the Chicago area. Huntington is the Chairman of NESA CHICAGO.
