E-mail from Teacher (2/11/04):

"Dear Mr. Savell,
Thanks for your presentation today.
I got great feedback from the kids about the way you related your points to things they were interested in or things they knew about. [Name redacted], the one who has heard law school is really boring but who would make law school fun if she were there, said she was expecting somebody 'mad, old and, like, uptight,' and she was really glad you weren't like that.
I was happy that you talked a little about some of the reasons we need laws. I was also frankly amazed that you got them to talk about the different roles of the three branches of government. We've been talking about that in Social Studies, but we've had a hard time making it concrete.
Again, thanks very much. We all enjoyed your time very much today."

10.  May 12, 2004: School for Legal Studies, Law Day Program, Brooklyn (City Bar Fund)

E-mail from school liaison (5/13/04):

"Larry -- A big thank you for scheduling your first appointment yesterday in East Williamsburg. Our spirited students -- often still a little sleepy at 2nd period -- appreciated your thoughtful presentation.

"The transition from the corporate world to career programming for inner-city adolescents, has been a joyous and meaningful challenge for me. Providing opportunities to meet successful professionals, who took school seriously, makes the world of work more real and, hopefully, strengthens the connection between education and future success for our students.

"Also, if you might be interested in involving the school with your other volunteer commitments, please let's explore these possibilities.

"Thanks again."

13.  May 5, 2005: H.S. 450, Long Island City High School, re Law Day (14-30 Broadway, Long Island City, Queens) (City Bar Association's Council on Judicial Administration)

Background (from May 2005 44th Street Notes, at 2): "In celebration of Law Day 2005, the Association’s Council on Judicial Administration will hold its annual outreach program for middle and high schools throughout the city on May 4 and 5, 2005. Under the program volunteer attorneys visit City public schools and speak to students in one or more classes on this year’s Law Day theme, 'The American Jury - We the People in Action,' or another law-related topic selected by the volunteer or the school. According to New York State Supreme Court Justice Richard Lee Price, chair of the Council’s Law Day program subcommittee, 'Our City’s schools are very excited about the program. We need as many volunteers as possible, so we can bring a Law Day message to all the schools requesting our help.' It is estimated that at least 100 volunteers will be needed to meet the schools’ requests for speakers. The time commitment for a volunteer is very limited and the personal rewards substantial. For most of the students involved, this will be their first in-person experience with an attorney, and they are very appreciative of it."

14.  May 24, 2005: Law Day 2005 at the School for Legal Studies, a public high school in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn (850 Grand Street) (City Bar Fund)

Background: "Originally founded by the American Bar Association in 1958, Law Day is a celebration that occurs in April and May at schools across the United States with programming focusing on our heritage of liberty under the law and how the rule of law makes our democracy possible. The School for Legal Studies will celebrate Law Day on Tuesday, May 24, 2005. The School has invited practicing attorneys, law enforcement personnel and other law-related professionals to speak to students about their work and to provide advice and guidance to students interested in pursuing legal careers. These classroom presentations give students a special opportunity to meet lawyers and other legal professionals and ask them questions about the justice system, the law and their careers. It is also a chance for the students to have a positive interaction with someone representing the legal community."

Message from City Bar Fund (April 5, 2005): "Thank you for volunteering for Law Day 2005 at the School for Legal Studies."
