Lady Justice Badge Program for Girl Scouts

The ISBA's Women in the Law Committee held the Lady Justice Program for Girl Scouts on Saturday, April 14, 2012. The annual educational program for Girl Scouts of Central Indiana was held at the Indiana University School of Law in Indianapolis. Girl Scouts in third, fourth, and fifth grades participated in the program where they completed projects, listened to a panel discussion, shared lunch and watched a mock trial. Girl Scouts that participated earned a "Lady Justice" badge (see photo below). The Lady Justice Program is the only law-related badge for Girl Scouts that is specifically geared toward female-centric issues in the law and designed to encourage career in the legal field.
