RWU School of Law Social Justice Camp

This day-program is designed for middle school students who are interested in learning more about the importance of law in daily life. 

Mandell-Boisclair Justice Camp is a one-week social justice summer camp for middle school children. Campers will enjoy learning about the justice system at RWU’s urban campus in the heart of downtown Providence. This program, created by law school professors, is appropriate for all middle school aged children interested in engaging with social justice movements, from free speech protestors, to environmental justice activists, to voting rights supporters. Your child will learn from practicing attorneys, members of the Rhode Island judiciary, and community leaders. Each child will be encouraged to complete a capstone project on the subject matter of their own choosing.
