School Through Law Workshops
For over 30 years, Legal Outreach has offered legal and educational programs as tools for youth engagement and community building. We offer law workshops that are engaging and relevant to urban youth and their families called Parent and Community Engagement (PACE) workshops. Our lessons, taught by attorneys, have helped youth acquire a balanced view of the law and inspired them to become responsible citizens and agents of change in their community. Parents and their children build relationships and foster community-building as they tackle issues such as search and seizure, stop and frisk and police use of force.

To inquire about rates for PACE workshops, please fill out this brief information form:

Legal Outreach’s GAVEL Program in Schools
Legal Outreach’s Growing Academically Via Education in Law (GAVEL) program provides rigorous, urban-focused curricula that use the law to help students hone higher-order thinking skills, such as problem solving, persuasive writing, and critical thinking and analytic skills – meeting Common Core standards for Social Studies and ELA – and preparing students to succeed in post-secondary education and the workforce. Our cutting-edge professional development for educators equips them to effectively implement the curricula. On-going technical assistance serves to maximize student engagement and skill acquisition.

Legal Outreach’s uniquely designed curricular materials can be used to create a dynamic law program that attracts students and can be built upon from year to year. Each curriculum can stand alone or be integrated into an on-going series of lessons.

The four main curricula are:

The Adventures of Urban Law Man: The Search for Law, Morals and Values – (Appropriate for grades 6-8)
This curriculum is designed to enhance the decision-making ability and social responsiveness of youth to legal and ethical situations which affect them, their families, and their community. The aim is to challenge young people to think critically, argue persuasively, and write effectively while considering the ethical and legal ramifications of their decisions.

Law, the Legal System and Dispute Resolution – (Appropriate for grades 7-12)
This curriculum explores how the legal system and legal processes can be used to resolve disputes that arise in the lives of urban students and their families. Students develop their advocacy, critical thinking and reasoning skills by evaluating methods given a particular scenario.

Law and Social Problems – (Appropriate for grades 7-12)
This curriculum takes an in-depth look at numerous social problems with legal implications and consequences that arise in the context of relationships between police and citizens, parents and children, husbands and wives, and landlords and tenants. As students learn the controlling laws that relate to the social problems they also develop reading comprehension, persuasive writing, reasoning, critical thinking and analytical skills.

Criminal Justice: Theory and Practice – (Appropriate for grades 7-12)
This curriculum helps students understand the underpinnings of the criminal justice process, from investigation of crimes by police through possible sentencing by judges. Through use of this curriculum students develop reading and listening comprehension, persuasive writing, reasoning, critical thinking, and analytical skills.

Student Competitions
Legal Outreach helps schools establish mock trial and debate programs at their schools as a means of helping students improve their college-readiness skills as well as understand the functions, operations, and intricacies of our legal system.
