Judges in the Classroom Volunteer Opportunities: Sign Up Today!

Judges in the Classroom is a program with which USD Law has recently joined forces. The program matches California teachers with judges who can visit their K-12 classrooms to assist with students’ inquiries into the judicial branch, the Constitution, rule of law, and related topics. Judges in the Classroom is seeking law students to also get involved by attending these classroom visits and assisting the judges with the lesson and answering questions the K-12 students may have about your law school experience. It would be a great way to get involved and share time with many San Diego judges.

There will be multiple volunteer opportunities available this semester including an upcoming visit to Leonardo Da Vinci Health Science Charter School with Hon. Polly Shamoon on Monday, January 27. If you would like to learn more about any upcoming classroom visits or want to sign up to volunteer for a Spring 2020 opportunity, please visit the Judges in the Classroom Volunteer Sign-Up page. These hours can be counted toward your pro bono recognition hours and your parking (some schools may charge for parking) and mileage will be reimbursed for travel to and from the schools (Note: USD will be the origin of travel). Contact: Assistant Director for Law Student Affairs Laurie Keller.

Lockers Available

A limited number of lockers in Warren Hall have recently become available for registration. If you are not already registered for a locker and would like one for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester, you may register online here. Be sure to review the instructions and layout and location information on the registration page prior to registering for a locker.

You may begin using your locker immediately. You are expected to vacate your selected locker at the end of the academic year (by Wednesday, May 13, 2020 at 5 p.m.). After this date, locks will be removed and any remaining items will be disposed of or donated.  

If you have any questions, please contact the Office for Law Student Affairs.
