THE MIAMI OFFICES OF Kenny Nachwalter and Gunster, Yoakley & Stewart recently welcomed approximately 30 high school students from Miami Carol City Senior High School and Miami Senior High School to participate in the Dade County Bar's eMentoring Program's annual law firm trip. The eMentoring Program is in its sixth year and pairs high school students interested in legal careers with young lawyers who are members of the Dade County Bar. Throughout the school year, the high school students and lawyers exchange e-mails regarding various legal issues in the news and meet for educational field trips and other events. During the firm field trip, lawyers from the firms spoke to the students regarding their day-to-day activities and their various practice areas.
