Wright Legal is grounded in a mission to serve the community. Since 2014, Wright Legal has partnered with community organizations to produce the annual Summer Law Programs. Umbrellaed under the non-profit organization, Master of My Fate, Inc., summer law programs provide over 100 youth each summer exposure to law and government. The initiative consists of three unique programs:

Lawyer Up Summer Law camp:

Designed for high school students interested in becoming lawyers, students meet and interact with lawyers, judges and court staff to get a real world look into the life in the law. During the week long camp, participants learn trial work through a mock trial problem which requires students to play lawyers and witnesses. They learn basic elements of trial like opening and closing statements and directing and cross examining witnesses. Parents are invited to serve as jurors for the final day trail.

Muscogee County Jail Project

Wright Legal was instrumental in starting this initiative to look into jail overcrowding and systemic problems inherent in incarcerations. Based on a similar program in Fulton County (the Fulton County Jail Project), community leaders partner with Columbus State University Students to interview, examine and survey the jail population to compile much needed data for the Chief Judge of Superior Courts of the Chattahoochee Circuit and community stake holders with an effort to solve the problem of jail overcrowding.
