Cahill Pro Bono: Know Your Rights
Partner Advisor: Sean P. Tonolli
Know Your Rights is a pro bono initiative that was established by Cahill attorneys to teach high school students about their legal rights. Through Cahill’s partnership with an Urban Assembly School in the Bronx, Cahill attorneys create and teach interactive lessons in various areas of criminal and constitutional law, with a focus on searches and seizures, pretrial procedures, trials, sentencing, and other practical topics, including students’ rights in schools. This initiative aims to empower students by providing practical advice for guiding them through potential encounters with the legal system, as well as the opportunity to share their experiences, voice concerns, and ask questions.
