WASHINGTON, D.C. - Annette Kinchiro of Wailuku attended the National Youth Leadership Forum on Law and Crime Scene Investigation from July 10 to 15 in Washington, D.C.
The six-day program was based on actual events, whereby students learned from examples set by attorneys and court officials from municipal court to the U.S. Supreme Court. Throughout the forum, students examined how court cases can change the legal system.
"Because our legal system plays a vital role in our daily lives, the National Youth Leadership Forum on Law and Crime Scene Investigation offers students the opportunity to learn directly from partners at law firms, forensic pathologists, criminal defense attorneys and prosecutors, as well as professors and other experts in the legal profession," said Dr. Marguerite Regan, dean of Academic Affairs for the National Youth Leadership Forum. "This is where the future for many students begins to take shape."
Kinchiro is the daughter of Jonas Madeus and Melissa Kirkendall of Wailuku.
