On Thursday March 23rd Sahn Ward hosted Baldwin School’s in an in-office Legal Shadow Day. Baldwin Schools had approximately ten students attend the local Nassau County Supreme Court in the morning where they got to witness the legal process firsthand. After their visit to the courts, they came to our law offices where they got to meet with attorneys and other paraprofessionals in our office to discuss their job roles, responsibilities, and aspirations. This opportunity allows the local youth to learn more about the legal process and all the different and relevant job opportunities it can bring.
