Alabama State University Alum and Florida A&M University College of Law graduate Brandon Price-Crum, along with the Butler County Concerned Citizens will launch the Butler County Junior Law Academy.
The program will take place on four consecutive Saturdays, starting Sept. 8 at the Butler County Courthouse Annex located at 202 Patsaliga Street in Greenville.
The Butler County Junior Law Academy is a pilot program with the objective of getting students interested and excited about the law and the legal profession. The program will teach middle and high school aged children (13-17 years old) about basic introductory legal concepts such court systems, criminal vs civil procedure, and trial basics. Also, students will learn the process of what it takes to become a lawyer.
Crum stated the throughout his years in college and law school he help create and participate in educational initiatives that helped students become better in the classroom and society.
He feels it is important for him to give back to the community in ways that will allow young people to find opportunities they may not have known which existed and prepare themselves for them.
His family has lived in Butler County for over 50 years.
“It is important for me to be able to help out and this will be a great way to do that,” said Crum.
The classes will be held one day a week for four weeks. Each session will be up to 2 ½ hours long.
Registration forms must be submitted by Sept. 1. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org
