Bronx School for Law, Government and Justice begins classes in its new facility

Students started classes at the Bronx School for Law, Government and Justice's new facility.

The school's new facility, which is on East 163rd Street in the Bronx court complex, cost $75 million to build. Inside the school students have the tools necessary to prepare for a career in law. There's a courtroom for mock trials and a science and forensics lab, where students learn how to conduct in depth investigations.

One student says she has always dreamed about being a lawyer to help people in the community.

There are currently 400 students enrolled at the school, which is partnered with the Bronx District Attorney.
