The goal of the Boston Bar Association’s Law Day in the Schools Program is to introduce Boston’s youth to Attorney Andra J. Hutchinsthe law and legal profession. KCL Partner Andra Hutchins was one of 130 BBA volunteers that visited with over 1650 Boston Public School students in Kindergarten through 12th Grade classrooms in 16 schools. The volunteers helped the students identify what changes they want to see in their communities, how they can use their voice to bring about change, and answered students questions about what it’s like to be a lawyer.

Andra met with second grade students in a Boston Public School on May 25. As an education lawyer with more than 20 years of experience representing students in special education, school discipline, suspensions and expulsions, and child placement matters, Andra was thrilled to have the opportunity to volunteer in the Boston schools.
