Junior Brandon Escala will be the first Tyrone student to attend the Future Latino Leaders Law Camp in Washington, DC from July 7th- July 15th, 2018.

Escala is one of only 32 students from across the country to be accepted to the program. Established by the Hispanic National Bar Foundation (HNBF) in 2005, the Law Camp offers students the chance to come to DC and learn about the legal profession, improve their mock trial skills, meet influential Latino leaders, and tour national monuments and various government agencies

— Brandon Escala

While there, students participate in a mock trial case, which is something that definitely interested Escala, a member of the Tyrone Mock Trial Team for the past two years.

“When it first came to my attention I was excited, and when I learned that there would be an opportunity to join a mock trial team, I was hooked,” said Escala.

Escala first learned of the opportunity through Mr. Todd Cammarata, Tyrone’s Mock Trial coach, who received the application information from the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s State Mock Trial Administrator.

“I am very excited for Brandon to be able to have this experience and bring everything that he learns back to the mock trial team next season,” said Cammarata.

What makes this camp especially competitive is that there is no cost for students accepted into the program.  All expenses including meals, lodging, and all activities are covered by the Hispanic National Bar Association.

According to their website, the Hispanic National Bar Foundation is a national non-profit  dedicated to helping Hispanics “achieve their potential through access to higher education and increase diversity in the legal profession.”
