Stephen D. Richman named Chair of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association’s 3 R’s.

3 R's

The 3R’s is an unprecedented program fostering personal connections between volunteers from the legal community and high school students in Cleveland and East Cleveland. Using a real-world curriculum focused on the U.S. Constitution and career counseling, teams of volunteers visit their assigned 10th grade social studies classes throughout the school year to:

  • Improve understanding of and respect for the rule of law and our Constitution;
  • Improve passage rates on the social studies portion of the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT);
  • Provide practical career counseling to focus students on their potential beyond high school; and,
  • Improve the “pipeline” of minorities flowing into legal careers in the region.
