The Legal Studies Academy has received so much support from our community, so we want to give back. As a student in the Legal Studies Academy, we help find and foster your passions by getting you involved in the community. Over the course of your four years in the academy, you will participate in over 200 hundred hours of community service, which may seem daunting, but we will work with you to spread these 200 hours out over the course of four years, so you're never overwhelmed. Most students graduate with well over 200 hours; many academy students graduate with over 500 hours, and some even graduate with over 1000 hours.
