Saper Law’s Summer Immersion Program will be held June 22-26 and August 10-14, 2020!
Currently in its 7th year, The Saper Law Immersion Program offers high school and college students the opportunity to explore legal career paths in one exciting week. 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.
