Drinker Biddle’s Law2Life program and its students were featured recently in the news. Students from Paterson’s Eastside High School in New Jersey participated in mock trials before the Hon. Stanley R. Chesler at the Federal Courthouse in Newark on May 15, 2014. The trials were the culmination of Law2Life, a legal enrichment program Drinker Biddle launched at Eastside High School at the beginning of the school year. NorthJersey.com followed the students in the program before and after the mock trials.

“Every single one of you did a wonderful job,” said Judge Chesler following the mock trials. “You should be proud of yourselves.”
