September 15, 2016 – The Justice Resource Center, along with Just the Beginning Foundation, The Second Circuit and the NYS courts, coordinated a “Robes Program” at the Federal Courthouse as part of the Judges’ Minority Judicial conference. The Courthouses welcomed students and teachers from 9 different schools across the city for a fun and educational day.  Over 300 students attended. The morning was spent acting out a voir dire exercise, with Second Circuit Judges and Judges from all over the country. Afterwards, the students had the opportunity to hear from the judges on their individual path to the bench. The day ended with a powerful and impassioned speech, followed by a Q&A, with Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Students and teachers alike left with smiles on their faces and a new-found appreciation for the law and our legal system!
