Young attorneys available for classroom workshops on peer pressure, bullying

Request a visit through the Junior Judges program

Volunteer attorneys want to help you educate students about making the right choices in life and how to stay safe.

The Hawaii State Bar Association's Young Lawyers Division invites you to participate in its annual Junior Judges program.

Attorneys visit 3rd-, 4th- and 5th-grade classrooms statewide and help students think about the challenges they face each day and how they can make ethical decisions amid peer pressure and other influences.

As “Junior Judges,” participating students will:

  • Watch a video that presents “mini cases” of kids like them placed in challenging situations involving issues such as bullying, stealing, drug use. 
  • Analyze the facts of each case and decide what is the best way to handle each situation.
  • Receive a Certificate of Participation.

Presentations are being scheduled for the week of October 21–25, between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

The Junior Judges program started in 2003 on Oahu and has since expanded to five islands. Over the last four years, the program has had up to 32 different schools apply in a single year and lawyers have conducted more than 250 presentations.
