Teachers' Law School
Teachers' Law School provides crash course in legal studies
The ABOTA Foundation is proud to present the Teachers’ Law School. Our Teachers’ Law School program, designed for middle school and high school government, social studies, history, law and civics educators, exposes participants to presentations, roundtables and workshops on topics aimed at giving teachers the tools to help their students better understand and appreciate the value of the American civil and criminal legal systems and the role those systems play in students’ lives and society.
Statistics have shown that more than half of high school graduates in America don’t know the three branches of government. Through ABOTA’s Teachers’ Law School, some of the best and brightest members of the bench and bar, who live and work with the law day in and day out, share practical realities of the civil and criminal law procedures and systems that protect students, their parents, their teachers, and all Americans.
The program is entering its fourth year in Austin, Texas, and has expanded to Denver, Colo., which held three programs in 2011. Sacramento, Calif., hosted its first Teachers Law School in August 2011.
The teachers were able to work with “master” trial lawyers and scholars from the state and federal judiciary.
Typical topics include:
