Legal Awareness Workshop (LAW)
Legal Awareness Workshop (LAW) is an early intervention educational program which targets juveniles who have been referred to the Fort Bend County Juvenile Department for minor offenses.
The workshop provides the juveniles and their parents detailed, educational information about the components and goals of the Texas Juvenile Justice System. The audience learns the role and purpose of law enforcement, the courts, prosecuting and defense attorneys, and the juvenile correctional agencies. The two-hour long program is presented on a monthly basis at The George Memorial Library in Richmond, Texas.
Since its inception in January 2000, there have been over 12,000 juveniles and their family members present at the Legal Awareness Workshop.
