The program was designed by Judge Hamilton in collaboration with the Summit County Executive's office to introduce scholars to the various aspects and possible career opportunities of the legal profession.

Throughout the course of these workshops, students have been exposed to strength assessments, goal setting and problem solving activities, panel discussions, and question-and-answer sessions with highly respected and accomplished judges, lawyers and various court personnel.

Some of the feedback received from the students was:

"It meant a lot to get advice from powerful people who looked like me."

"This program really helped me think about the decisions I am making now."

"I realize that there are good people out there who are willing to help me succeed and reach my goals."

"There was so much real-life advice that I will take with me to get ready for college ... it kind of made me think about the habits I have now and what I want."

"I really liked being able to connect with highly successful people who really cared about my future."
