Contra Costa Judges, Attorneys Work to Increase Diversity in the Legal Profession
On November 4, 2011, judges and attorneys, including Richmond’s own Christopher Darden, will present an informal program designed to encourage minority high school students to make a difference and become the new face of justice.
What: The Color of Justice
When: November 4, 2011, 8:00 am – 1:00 pm
Where: Contra Costa County Superior Court, Martinez, CA
The Color of Justice Program was developed by the National Association of Women Judges and has been implemented in states all over the country. Richmond High School has been selected as the first school in Contra Costa County to participate in this unique program, which will include, in addition to small group discussions, an enactment of a realistic legal proceeding. This first program will include, among others, members of the state and federal judiciary.
