Manning & Kass Partners with Project ECHO
Last week Manning & Kass partnered with Project ECHO and opened its doors to 26 high school students from all over Los Angeles county. They were given the unique opportunity to hear from numerous administrators on how to run a law firm and their particular roles within it. Led by our own Eugene Ramirez, the students were also mentored by attorneys and law clerks on how to formulate an argument and then argue their position in front of a judge.
Project ECHO (Entrepreneurial Concepts Hand On) is a non-profit organization established in 1996 to provide at-risk students with a dynamic alternative education to help them acquire useful vocational skills and entrepreneurship training and experience. Today, Project ECHO has expanded to a vibrant business academy and involves more than 500 students from diverse academic and socio-economic backgrounds.
