Judges and Lawyers to Discuss Freedom and Its Responsibilities in Aftermath of 9/11 with Students from Los Angeles-Area High Schools

Volunteers needed to conduct discussions this year on September 11, 2008. Contact

Join LACBA’s Dialogues on Freedom to help lead a discussion in a local Los Angeles-area high school on September 11, 2008, focusing on the meaning of freedom and how we can balance freedom and security in the wake of the events of September 11, 2001.

Since its inception in 2002, this annual program, which is cosponsored by the Los Angeles Superior Court in cooperation with the Los Angeles Unified School District, has become a day of remembrance and tribute, and an opportunity for lawyers and judges to impact high school students in our community—future decision-makers who are in particular need of guided discussion regarding the importance of the events since 2001 by focusing on issues related to the legal system and government.

Volunteer teams of lawyers and judges will conduct the September 11 dialogues throughout the day in 50-minute sessions in high school classes around Los Angeles County. (Last year, teams received assignments at the following schools: Belmont, Chatsworth, Dorsey, Eagle Rock, Fremont, Hollywood, Jefferson, Lincoln, Manual Arts, Monroe, North Hollywood, Roosevelt, University, Venice, and Wilson. Schools participating this year will be posted at as the program date approaches.)

Trainings for judges and lawyers who wish to participate in this year’s dialogues will take place on Thursday, September 4, at 5:30 p.m. at Stanley Mosk Courthouse, 111 N. Hill St., Room 222, in downtown Los Angeles or alternatively on Saturday, September 6, at 10:00 a.m. at Venice High School, 13000 Venice Blvd. If you are interested in participating as a volunteer in the Dialogues on Freedom program, please e-mail the following information—your name, firm/office name, firm/office address, office phone, and e-mail address—to by August 22, 2008.
