 street law

Street law is an approach to teaching practical law to grassroots audiences using interactive teaching methodologies. Elements of practical law taught include awareness of human rights/civil rights, democratic principles, conflict resolution, the advocacy process, criminal and civil law, employment law, family law, and consumer rights.


The Street law approach began in 1972 when Georgetown University Law Center developed a program that sent law students into high schools in Washington, DC to teach practical law lessons to high school students. Street law, Inc., an outgrowth of the Georgetown program, develops and implements practical law education programs around the world.


McGraw-Hill has published a high school social studies textbook using this approach.
