Business & Law
As a high school student in a community infested with gang activity, drug addiction, and prostitution, Sandra has set many goals for herself: to go to a university and also to get a Master’s degree and a law license. She has always wanted to become a Public Defender, but she didn’t know if she would make a successful lawyer because she had never experienced any kind of pre-law classes.
Sandra wants to attend UCLA’s Mock Trial Institute, an intense mock trial and legal studies summer program run by UCLA’s championship mock trial team. There, she hopes to gain meaningful experience in the legal field and expose herself to career options in law.
