Torys welcomed 30 high school students from the Law in Action Within School (LAWS) Youth Summer Program to the firm on July 15. We were pleased to provide these students with a up-close view of our firm and enrich their knowledge of the legal practice.
The LAWS Youth Summer Program is a unique school experience offered every year to a group of exceptional high school students from around the world. This year the program spans seven one-week sessions over July and August. Students spend a week learning and discussing legal concepts, and work towards exciting and challenging activities. Each week focuses on a different area of law: criminal, international, corporate, trial advocacy, entertainment and the law and politics.
Torys has a successful history of partnering with LAWS through their Law Firm Mentoring Program. Since 2009, our legal professionals have provided guidance and support as mentors to LAWS students from Harbord Collegiate Institute. These initiatives enable students to gain exposure to a professional environment, receive support for pursuing postsecondary education and build workplace skills.
