About the Program
The Saper Law Immersion Program was founded in 2013 by Daliah Saper, Principal Attorney at Saper Law Offices. While originally intended for recent law school graduates, the program has evolved into a week-long camp that exposes high school and college students to the legal profession. The course takes place at Saper Law Offices and is taught by Daliah Saper and other Saper Law attorneys. The curriculum consists of negotiation and writing exercises, field trips to the state and federal courthouse, and mock legal proceedings. Since Saper Law practices heavily in the areas of social media and digital technology, a key component of the exercises will involve entertainment, business, and internet related legal case studies. Past guest lecturers have included: former Lieutenant Governor of Illinois, Evelyn Sanguinetti, Government Attorneys for the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, In-House Counsel at United Airlines and Fin-tech company Avant, former Counsel for the Jerry Springer Show, as well as criminal, civil rights, environmental, immigration, employment, estate, family and regulatory lawyers from a variety of firms. The program has been profiled by the Chicago Law Bulletin and various tech blogs. Check out the pictures from past sessions here!
