Partner Allan M. Siegel and Associate Ebony M. Robinson attended the ingaural
Marshall Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project Law Fair at American
University, Washington College of Law, on Saturday, November 21, 2009.
The Marshall Brennan Project recruits second and third year law students
to teach courses on constitutional law and juvenile justice in public
high schools in the District of Columbia and Maryland. The program holds
an annual high school moot court competition, which is judged by local
attorneys, sitting and retired judges, and law students. This year, the
program held a law fair for the first time in conjunction with the moot
court competition, and high school students, their parents, and Marshall
Brennan fellows could learn about different legal organizations in the
area. CSCS had a table at the fair where Allan and Ebony answered questions
from the students regarding what is it like to be a trial lawyer and the
type of cases our firm handles. The students were very enthusiastic and
the fair was extremely informative for the participants. The fair was
a huge success and CSCS will participate in the program again next year.
Just another example of how we are committed to educating and empowering
our community . . . a practice Don Chaikin started years ago.
