Chicago, IL & San Francisco, CA
Street Law and its national partner, the Law School Admission Council’s DiscoverLaw.org, are conducting faculty development seminars in Chicago (October 25–26, 2012) and San Francisco (November 14–15, 2012) for professors and staff interested in implementing Street Law at their community college.
Street Law for Community Colleges is a recently designed and piloted civic engagement/democratic practice program that prepares and encourages community college students to become more active, informed participants in our dynamic democratic society. It includes interactive classroom instruction that is complemented and reinforced by community-based learning.
The faculty development seminars connect like-minded faculty to learn about the Street Law program, the accompanying textbook, best practices in civic learning, and the positive impact of having a Street Law course on your campus. The seminars also provide participants with an opportunity to enhance their Street Law course with a legal diversity pipeline component to educate students about legal careers through resources offered by LSAC’s DiscoverLaw.org.
