Teens & The Law
For the past six years the Genesee County Bar Association has recruited volunteer attorneys to discuss the law to area high school students through our "Teens & The Law" program. Topics include laws which are pertinent to their lifestyles and not usually covered in civics and government classes.
Volunteer attorneys speak to senior citizens throughout the county about estate planning, durable power of attorney and many other important issues.
