ORLANDO, Fla – It’s called Colors of Law and it’s a motivational coloring book produced by Florida A&M University (FAMU) College of Law. The goal is to encourage young children to consider careers in the legal field when they grow up and to consider attending FAMU Law for their juris doctor degrees. “We realize young children pay attention to career choices and are influenced by occupations that interest them,” said FAMU Law Associate Provost and Interim Dean Cecil Howard. “This motivational coloring book shares images of legal careers for youngsters to think about as they work through the school system and prepare for college.” The creation of Colors of Law was a project assigned to FAMU Law’s communications intern Ja’Caiya Stephens. The Miami native is a student at FAMU’s School of Journalism and Graphic Design. “I truly enjoyed and appreciated the opportunity to design the Colors of Law coloring book,” said Stephens. “I hope the coloring book will inspire young children to consider learning more about law or even entering the legal profession.” Colors of Law brought hours of delight to youngsters at the Developmental Research School in Tallahassee, Florida. Students read the text and colored the images. A limited number of coloring books will be shared with community partners for distribution to children in the Orlando area. The 12-page coloring book is also available on where it can be downloaded at no cost.
