Street Law, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing practical, participatory education about law, democracy, and human rights. Through its philosophy and programs, people are empowered to transform democratic ideals into citizen action.
Street Law began in 1972, when a small group of Georgetown University Law Center students developed an experimental curriculum designed to teach District of Columbia high school students about practical aspects of the law and the legal system. Because of its practical nature, this course was called Street Law. The Street Law curriculum evolved into a unique textbook, which is now the nation's leading high school law text. Its publication played an important role in adding law to the curricula of school systems around the country.
Street Law has developed dozens of publications and programs on practical law, crime prevention, conflict resolution, and youth advocacy for use in school systems, juvenile justice facilities, and community settings. It also works internationally, with programs in more than 30 democratizing nations around the world.
Street Law’s site was redesigned in 2008 by Caudill Web. The new site is clean, engaging and professional, and includes an online store and a straightforward event registration system. The organization has migrated its various contact databases to the Relational CMS contact manager, which is flexible enough to include many custom program-related fields.
