As part of a challenging and exciting four-year sequence, students learn about and experiment with law in their own school, law in their city, state and country, and law around the world and throughout history. The school is comprised of 100 students per grade, most of whom are low-income students of color. SLJ is providing these historically underserved students with the high quality, rigorous education they deserve, so that when – not if – they move on to college, our students will soar.
