Supreme Court Summer Institute for Teachers
Since it began in 1995, the Supreme Court Summer Institute for Teachers has brought together over 900 teachers from across the country to convene in Washington, D.C., for six days of educational activities related to teaching about the U.S. Supreme Court.
The Institute is co-sponsored by the Supreme Court Historical Society.

The Institute includes sessions led by Supreme Court experts, journalists, authors, and lawyers, who give teachers an in-depth understanding of how the Court chooses and decides cases, and what it is like to argue before the Court. The Institute covers six current or recent cases, and teachers even learn about the personalities of the justices. This exciting opportunity culminates with a visit to the Court to hear decisions handed down and a reception at the Court.
The Institute prepares teachers to use innovative methods to teach about both current and historical cases. Beyond the content-rich sessions and activities, teachers are also equipped with the skills and tools to train fellow teachers at home.
Two Summer Institutes will be held in 2015: June 18 - 23 & June 25 - 30.
Past participants are invited to join the Street Law Teachers Network. Share lesson plans, ask questions, and learn about other professional development opportunities. If you have any problems accessing the network, email Christina Barnett.
We depend on past participants to publicize the Supreme Court Institutes and Seminars. If you're presenting or attending a workshop and can hand out brochures, contact Christina Barnett.
