On June 8, 2016, fifteen high school students from the University of Hawaii’s “Law and Justice Summer Program” visited the Hawaii State Supreme Court, and met with Chief Justice Mark Recktenwald, Associate Justice Paula Nakayama, and other Judiciary personnel.

Through the 2016 “Law and Justice Summer Program,” the University of Hawaii Law School is hosting students from seven high schools for five days of hands-on learning to increase their understanding of our legal system, and introduce them to future opportunities in legal education.

The Kamehameha V Judiciary History Center helped arrange for the participants to observe a Circuit Court trial, speak with Judiciary personnel, as well as tour the Judiciary History Center and Hawaii Supreme Court. Associate Justice Michael Wilson will present the students with certificates of completion at the end of the week.
