Tulsa students from McLain, Booker T and Rogers high schools took part in an all day legal training seminar to show them career opportunities in the legal field.

Tulsa attorney Damario Solomon-Simmons says the seminar was his way of giving back to kids in his Tulsa neighborhood. The Pipeline Plus Legal Diversity program provides high school students with the chance to explore the legal profession. One of the speakers Thursday was U.S. Attorney Danny Williams for the Northern District of Oklahoma.

Students also got to witness a mock trial as a federal judge and lawyers demonstrated what happens in the courtroom.

Damario Solomon-Simmons says his goal is to encourage inner-city youth to seek opportunities in the legal profession as they continue their education.
