Lawyers' Alliance


The Lawyers’ Alliance is a group of attorneys serving the community under the umbrella of the Council for Educational Change.  Attorneys donate their time, expertise, and resources by engaging with schools as guest speakers, or taking students to court visits, mentoring educators, and sponsoring Law Clubs and debate teams.

Why a Law Firm

  • Lawyers lead by example. Lawyers are business executives with a unique perspective.  They are knowledgeable about the law as well as the management of a business.
  • The nature of their profession allows lawyers to interact with the real world.  They see the human and economic impact of not having an education.
  • Lawyers can promote the value of education as a deterrent to crime.
