Judge Phinia Aten hosts Annual Youth Law Camp

Justice 1

Dozens of youths learned about the legal system at the Third Annual Youth Law Camp in Rockdale County on Feb. 19 presented by Chief Magistrate Judge Phinia Aten in association with the Newrock Legal Society.

Chief Magistrate Judge Phinia Aten and the Newrock Legal Society presented the day-long camp, open to students in the 8th through 12th  grades in Rockdale and Newton counties.

Students participated in interactive civic activities such as mock trials and mock legislative sessions and learned from an array of speakers including judges, lawyers, law enforcement officers and others. The free camp, founded by Judge Aten in 2016, is designed to educate, empower, engage and entertain students who are interested in learning about careers in the legal system.

“I wanted to offer our teens the opportunity to do something educationally enriching during their break and approach it as time to work toward their future life goals,” said Aten. “It’s never too early to experience a career break-through and network with professionals actively contributing to your chosen industry.”
