The LRE program exists to serve teachers in their efforts to teach about the law in their classes, by developing curriculum material for grades K-12 and holding workshops on various aspects of law-related education. These workshops are designed for teachers who want basic training in law-related education, law-related education resources and teaching strategies, as well as basic substantive information about such areas as the civil, criminal and juvenile justice processes; the federal and state court systems; and alternative dispute resolution.
