Law Related Education

Law-Related Education (LRE) programs and curricula are designed to give people an understanding and appreciation of the law, the legal system, and their rights and responsibilities as citizens. Law-related education programs employ legal processes and principles to help young people find practical solutions to everyday problems.  Students in LRE programs are active, hands-on participants. Community resource persons who work within the legal system are an important part of the LRE team.
LRE helps youth become effective, law-abiding citizens by promoting civic responsibility and participation.  It increases young people’s self-esteem and promotes a more favorable attitude toward authority figures.  It may be used in school, counseling, probation, or institutional settings.  LRE is an important part of the nationwide effort to prevent violence and restore mutual respect and civility to American community life.
