Join other civic-minded high school leaders…

…at the first-ever Civics, Law, and Leadership Youth Camp presented by the BYU Law School!

In this hands-on, highly interactive learning experience you will:

  • Develop the leadership skills you need to become civically engaged with issues that spark your passion.

  • Work personally with judges, lawyers, and law professors to explore law-related careers.

  • Engage in realistic and interactive trials, appeals, and jury deliberations.

  • Visit a courthouse to see how media portrayals compare to live proceedings and learn the impact of the courts on daily life.

  • Build friendships through fun social activities including a movie night, dance and more!

This camp is supported by the Federal Bar Association, and will use a curriculum based on educational resources developed by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.

Who should apply?

Students with an interest in law, government, or leadership who will be sophomores, juniors or seniors during the 2017–2018 school year are especially encouraged to apply. Students with an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and business also are encouraged to apply. All applications are requested by June 15, 2017.

Applicants will be selected primarily on the basis of financial need, with consideration also being given to academic potential, leadership, school and community service, work experience, and the potential impact this program will have on the participant. Applicants will receive notice of financial aid decisions in the spring.
