Street Law is a community oriented legal education program. Law students meet weekly to review substantive areas of law for presentation the following week in public high school classrooms. They work with cooperating teachers to bring practical law to students at varying academic levels. Law students are responsible for providing background materials and facilitating substantive discussions, as well as organizing field trips to legal institutions, and/or teen participation in mock debates. All students develop weekly lesson plans and provide weekly written reflections of their experience.
