Mdivani Corporate Immigration Law Firm is pleased to share that our very own, Danielle Atchison, was recently featured in the Missouri Bar Journal’s article on their Citizenship Education and programming. The Missouri Bar’s Citizen Education Department provides resources for high school teachers to help enable the education of governmental and constitutional issues. Additional resources include programming that help students understand and engage in civics. In 2005, Danielle Atchison and her AP Government class competed in The Missouri Bar’s We the People competition – now known as Show-Me the Constitution.
The competition is set up as a Mock-Congressional hearing where students are challenged to research and deliver oral presentations about topics related to Constitutional issues surrounding current events. The presentations are followed up by a judging round where students are questioned on their knowledge and understanding of the topic. Just like Danielle, many students sought this to be their stepping stone into their future in law. Atchison notes that, “It was practical, hands-on skill sets where I was building the muscles to dig into a concept that was maybe way too difficult at first sight.” This vital program influenced Danielle to further pursue a career in law and eventually serve as a Business Immigration Lawyer with Mdivani Corporate Immigration Law Firm.
