Interested in Careers in Law?

The National Bar Association Crump Law Camp was established to provide students entering the 9th through 11th grades (ages 14 to 17) with an introduction to the American judicial system. Three other national minority bars—the Hispanic National Bar Association, the Native American Bar Association and the National Asian Pacific Bar Association have generously given their support to the camp as well. By providing incentives, motivation and direction to aspiring law students of color, the National Bar Association Crump Law Camp helps prepare the nation’s future lawyers, judges and protectors of the judicial system. The inaugural two-week camp was held during the summer of 2001 at Howard University School of Law supported by a grant from the Ford Motor Company Fund. Thirty-two students of diverse backgrounds and ethnicities descended upon the Howard University campus where they were introduced to law school and learned some of the skills required to be an effective lawyer.
