Student Mentored by Michael Futterman Places First in Debate
NJ LEEP Inc., a college-preparation nonprofit in Newark, ran the debate on the constitutional implications of a race-conscious admissions program at a hypothetical public university. The debate judges included attorneys and Seton Hall University School of Law professors.
The organization, based at the law school, provides law-related and college-access programming to middle and high school students in Newark and offers guidance to its alumni who are in college.
Michael meets frequently with his mentee, and his role includes helping the student prepare and write briefs for four constitutional law debates.
