Benton White of Auburn, a junior at Bear River High School, will participate in the National Youth Leadership Forum on Law Jan. 29 to Feb. 3 in Los Angeles. Benton will join more than 350 high school students from across the country.

The program curriculum is based on actual events, allowing participants to learn from the examples set by attorneys and court officials from municipal court to the U.S. Supreme Court. Students will examine how court cases often change the legal system. The program includes visits to several law firms and area courthouses.
