Over 40 years of educating about law, democracy, and human rights
Street Law /
According to the Law-Related Education Act of 1978, law-related education is “education to equip nonlawyers with the knowledge and skills pertaining to the law, the legal process, and the legal system, and fundamental principles and values on which these are based.”
Street Law’s civics and LRE programs offer curriculum designed around these principles, training in these methods, and program design to develop educated, active citizens—both in the U.S. and abroad.
Law-related education achieves the following:
At the foundation of democracy/civic education are human rights. Using the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a guide, Street Law works to inject human rights principles into our programs and curricula that educate youth and adults around the world.
Street Law operates a set of legal diversity pipeline programs—all designed to increase diversity in the legal profession. These programs target high school students of color and work to increase their interest in the law, their knowledge about legal careers and legal career pathways, and encourage them to pursue legal careers.
Street Law’s Supreme Court professional development programs help classroom teachers expand and improve instruction about the Supreme Court of the United States. Through interactive lessons, reflective training, valuable experts, content-based instruction, and online support, the Institutes and Seminars help teachers strengthen their knowledge of the Supreme Court and equip them to use interactive lessons and methods in their classroom.
Practical legal education is especially valuable for teenage parents, kids in the juvenile justice system, adolescents who are aging out of foster care, and other underserved populations/communities of young people. Street Law specializes in programs and curricula that educate these young people about their rights and responsibilities under the law.
Street Law strives not only to educate young people about the law, but to empower them to take an active role in the civic affairs of their schools, communities, and countries. Our youth advocacy programs teach young people how to identify problems and make positive change in their lives and the lives of others.
