WCS held the second annual “Rosie the Lawyer” program for female CollegeBound students last Fall. The firm started the program in 2013 to introduce students to unique areas of law over a four part program which runs once a month from September through December.
The 20 selected students had the opportunity to meet female attorneys during a panel discussion at the offices of Wright, Constable & Skeen. Next, the students attended a business etiquette training course by The Etiquette School of Maryland held at the Historic Grand Venue. The course also covered dining etiquette as well. During the third session they were addressed by Judge Audrey Carrion in her courtroom about her own personal experience from undergrad to being a minority city judge. The students were also afforded the opportunity to sit and observe a courtroom experience in the afternoon . The program wrapped up the WCS office with CollegeBound alumni and attorney, Alicia Wilson speaking to the students about her shared experience with the students to practicing law today and giving back to her community.
This program provides an opportunity for the students to gain exposure outside of their classroom in a professional setting and to meet mentors within the Baltimore city professional community. We look forward to continuing our Rosie tradition for years to come.
