Hemet High School Students to Visit Atkinson Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo
Some 40 high school juniors and seniors from Hemet’s Tahquitz High School will visit the main offices of Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo (“AALRR”) on September 17 to spend a day learning about law and the people who practice the profession.
The students are part of the school’s Advancement Via Individual Determination program, or “AVID,” which provides advanced college preparatory programs, elective classes and field trips to colleges, universities and other sites. The visit to the Cerritos offices of AALRR will include a tour of the office and its various practice groups, interaction with attorneys, and a chance to sit in on mock legal proceedings.
The visit is part of AALRR’s Student Enrichment Program, and the firm is pleased to host the Tahquitz High School students. “Students can be overwhelmed when it comes to thinking about their careers, and we are thrilled to be able to offer these young people a chance to gather some first-hand experience,” said James Baca, Education Law Practice Group Chair. “The practice of law is not an easy profession but it is very rewarding, and we welcome a chance to help them understand what it takes. Although we emphasize what we do as attorneys, paralegals, and other related careers in the legal environment, the goal of the program is to stress the importance of continued education.”
