The Legal Community

Lawyers, legal professionals, law students, and police officers

Street Law's partnerships with the legal community tap the knowledge of lawyers, legal professionals, law students, and police officers to teach young people about law and careers in law, law enforcement, and government. We offer programming to prepare and place legal professionals in classroom- and community-based teaching settings.   

Legal community members make ideal subject-matter experts (or "community resource people," as we like to call them) and can play an important role in delivering high-quality, effective civic education. When incorporated into classroom learning, community resource people can bring the law to life through real-world examples and experiences and serve as powerful positive role models.
