Area youth are invited to attend the Capital City Lawyers Association (CCLA) 2018 Youth Law Day event at the Wake County Courthouse tomorrow.

The program provides opportunities for individuals to learn about the judicial branch and judicial system, as well as expose them to the different roles of people who work in the courthouse and courtroom, according to a news release.

Participants will be able to interact with and ask questions of attorneys, judges and law enforcement officers, and take a tour of the Wake County jail. They will also be encouraged to consider potential careers in the legal and or law enforcement fields.

The program is open to middle and high school students between the ages of 12 and 16. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday and the program will begin at 9:15 a.m. lasting through 1 p.m. at the Wake County Courthouse, 316 Fayetteville Street in Raleigh.

CCLA is a local, inclusive, voluntary bar association comprised primarily of minority attorneys, judges and elected officials, according to its website.
