The FBA Oregon Chapter Ancer Haggerty Scholars Program offers current high school juniors an opportunity to explore their interests in law and civil rights. Scholars selected for the program are recognized at the annual FBA Oregon Chapter dinner to kick off the program. Program participants then meet with a local attorney mentor, visit one or more law offices (such as a law firm, government prosecutor, or defender’s office) during a week over the summer break, and attend law and civil rights events during the 2017-2018 school year.
Eligibility requirements: The Haggerty Scholars Program is for current high school juniors (graduating in 2018) with an interest in law and civil rights. Students must be willing to attend the annual FBA Oregon Chapter dinner on May 25, 2017 with a parent or teacher, meet with an attorney mentor on a regular basis, visit legal workplaces during one week over the summer break, and attend law and civil rights events during the 2017-2018 school year.
