The Edward J. Lewis II Lawyers in the Classroom Curriculum is a collection of lessons designed for attorney volunteers to use on their visits to elementary and middle school classrooms. The dynamic activities and strategies employed in the lessons help students learn about our legal system in a way that meaningfully relates important ideas and skills to their lives. Attorney volunteers bring their “real-life” perspectives into the classroom and engage students in discussions and simulations that call upon their critical thinking skills.
The curriculum is divided into four sections. The Introduction provides general information about the Lawyers in the Classroom program, including a link to online reflection forms that one member of an attorney team and the teacher are to complete after each visit.
