Laws affect our everyday life, so getting a better grasp on when and how the hammer comes down can be an eye-opening experience.
Citizen law academy applications are now being accepted. The free program is organized by the Seventh District Bar Association and the Idaho Law Foundation.
Participants will learn about their rights under the law, how the judicial system works, what lawyers do, and how lawyers public service and pro bono work.
The 7-week course will consist of presentations from lawmakers, judges, attorneys, and others.
“It’s a program that’s championed by people all the way from state senators, to a member of the circuit court of appeals, and it’s interesting because it’s one of the few opportunities that anybody in the community has to rub shoulders and learn from these great community leaders,” said Seventh Judicial District Bar Association president, Alan Johnston.
Classes will be held every Wednesday from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm from Sept. 25 to Nov. 6, in the Centennial Courtroom of the Bonneville County Courthouse.
To apply, contact Amanda E. Ulrick at (208) 524-0566 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are due by Sept. 23rd.
