In 1997, it joined Street Law in Central Europe and Russia: Building a Network and in 1998, the Open Society Institute/Street Law Network programs. Under these programs the Association strengthened the growing law school-based Street Law program and produced a secondary practical law textbook.  Ms. Platek is a leader in establishing law school clinics all over Eastern Europe as well as in other Polish universities. 

Presently, the Association works with five other educational organizations to run law school-based Street Law programs where law students teach in secondary schools and prisons.
