Matthew Sykes Launches Educational Reentry Program

Skadden Fellow Matthew Sykes was profiled by The Press of Atlantic City, which highlighted his role launching the South Jersey Educational Reentry Program (“Atlantic City Native, Rutgers Law Grad to Help Juvenile Offenders Return to Classroom,” March 13). Under the program, court-involved youth receive free legal representation and educational reentry services to help them reenroll in school. “I saw a gap where there was a lack of educational continuity,” he said. “I thought private attorneys could play a role.”
