The lawyers at the Locks Law Firm are mindful of the importance of giving back to the communities where they live and work. Partner Marc P. Weingarten has shown his dedication to the community by teaching a class in high school civics. Marc participated this past academic year in a program called Advancing Civics Education. This unique program is a joint effort of the Philadelphia Bar Association and the School District of Philadelphia. It is designed to place attorneys and judges in Philadelphia public school classrooms to teach a civics course.
Marc was assigned to the Philadelphia Military Academy at Leeds where he showed up once a month during the school year armed with his curriculum, course outline and visual aids. He taught his class of high school students the historical background and underpinnings of our system of laws, government and constitutional principles. Marc felt that the experience was worthwhile and looks forward to his school assignment for the upcoming year.
