History of the Program


CKM’s Law & Public Policy Academy (LPPA) is one of the original 8 statewide law academies created under the California Partnership Academy program.  The California State Bar and the Department of Education requested and were tasked with creating a high school law program(s) designed to introduce high school students to law, government and public policy and to provide a practical and academic course of studies designed to promote students in the the legal field through a series of pathways from high school to college (community & 4-year) and on to law school thereby expanding and diversifying the legal community.
