Bingham Greenebaum Doll and WellPoint Bring Street Law to T. C. Howe Community High School – Part 1
Posted in Litigation

Bingham Greenebaum Doll has a longstanding relationship with T. C. Howe Community High School (Howe High School), part of the Indianapolis public school system. Bingham Greenebaum Doll attorneys have been involved with the Howe schools for more than 15 years through a variety of programs, including one-on-one mentoring and classroom reading.

The firm holds an annual silent auction in December to raise funds for families in need at Howe High School. In addition, the firm holds an annual clothing drive for students who need school uniforms. Last year, the firm also began a scholarship program for Howe High School students to provide academic scholarships for two students annually. 

The firm heard about the Street Law program during an IBA Diversity Job Fair Luncheon presentation by John Cannon, General Counsel for WellPoint. The Street Law program pairs a law firm with a company (Bingham Greenebaum Doll and Wellpoint in this instance) to teach high school students about practical aspects of the law and the legal system in an effort to increase diversity and interest in legal careers. Attorneys and legal staff from Bingham Greenebaum Doll and Wellpoint were excited to  volunteer their time to educate the students at Howe High School about the law and legal careers. 

The volunteer Street Law program centers around a half day workshop where students get a real taste of what it takes to be a lawyer, with a role playing portion led by attorneys and legal staff. To prepare for the workshop, the attorneys taught lessons in contract and employment law at Howe High School.
