Street Law--Youth & Education

Students teach law-related topics in local public high schools and participate in weekly simulated teaching seminars at UCLA Law. The course is based on a community legal education approach. In consultation with the host high school teacher, each student develops their own curriculum; all legal areas and issues are open for consideration. In the weekly seminars, students engage in practice teaching and role playing, workshop curricular ideas, and examine various aspects of teaching (e.g., lesson planning, teaching practices and methods, and classroom engagement). Seminar discussions include examining similarities between teaching and practicing law, especially relating to communication between lawyers and non-lawyers, problem-solving and improvisational thinking.
