To support its Constitutional Law Debate program

Legal Outreach is a college preparatory organization whose mission is to change the educational and career trajectory of students from underserved communities by (1) providing them with vision, inspiration and motivation, (2) equipping them with the academic skills critical to their future, and (3) supplying them with the support necessary to pursue higher education and professional careers.  The law is simply a tool for achieving these objectives.  The goal is to equip students with the skills necessary to perform well at the collegiate level, the professional level, and in life.  Funds will be used to support its Constitutional Law Debate program, but especially the Debater of the Year Program, which will be held at the Thurgood Marshall Federal Courthouse.
