The Saper Law immersion program was founded in 2013 by Daliah Saper, Principal Attorney at Saper Law Offices.While originally intended for recent law school graduates, the programhas evolved into a week long camp that exposes high school students to the legal profession. The course takes place at Saper Law Offices and is taught by Daliah Saper and other Saper Law attorneys. The curriculum consists of negotiation and writing exercises, field trips to the state and federal courthouse, and mock legal proceedings. Since Saper Law practices heavily in the areas of social media and digital technology, a key component of the exercises will involve entertainment, business, and internet related legal case studies. Guest lecturers including attorneys practicing in big law firms, nonprofits, and in-house corporations will also meet with the class. The program has been profiled by the Chicago Law Bulletin and various tech blogs.
There is currently one session scheduled for this year, from August 29th to September 2nd, 2016. For more details about the program, feel free to visit the FAQ page.
