The Society is proud of its longstanding partnership with Bard College, and specifically Bard High School Early College. With Bard, the Society has developed lesson plans and other curricula, teachers workshops across the state, and a fellowship that brings lawyers and scholars into the classroom to teach students about the important role of the courts in our society and empower students to understand the rights afforded to them by this branch of government.
We are pleased to present a conversation between our longstanding education partner Aisha Lloyd Williams and a 2019-2020 Judith S. Kaye Teaching Fellow Jehan Senai Worthy about a new initiative launched as a Saturday class in Harlem that provides enrichment to high school students. The class was held in a community center and, to reach students who could not attend in person, adapted to remote learning before COVID-19 made distance teaching the norm. Their discussion about the rewards of learning about the courts and the empowerment students gain is enlightening. We hope many of you will listen to this podcast.
