Wednesday marks 'Law Day' at Girls Inc.

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The young ladies of Girls Inc. are learning firsthand about the law.

Wednesday is Law Day at Girls Inc. and the girls were able to take group tours of courtrooms and offices inside the government center. They will also participate in mock trials.

"To get an idea of what it's like to be in the field of law or in law enforcement. Sometimes it's easier to understand or inspire to be something if you can see it and that's what it's all about so we feel like if they can see it they too can be it," Katonga Wright said, with Wright Legal Group.

Boy's Law Day will be next week and young men will get the same experiences as the girls.
