A diverse group of twenty Law and Justice professionals from City Attorneys and City Prosecutors to Federal Special Agents and Marketing Directors from a local law firm were present at CALJ's Law Day Event on Friday, April 27th, 2018. There were 20 guest speakers and 22 mentors for mentoring sessions for about 500 students in 15 rooms.
