Law Students

Start a Street Law program at your law school!
Since 1972, law schools around the world have developed Street Law programs that teach young people in schools, communities, and corrections sites about the law, while providing law students with a unique, powerful professional development opportunity.

Lawyers and legal professionals

Our Legal Diversity Pipeline Programs expose young people from diverse communities to everyday law and legal careers. With the goal of encouraging more young people of color to consider pursuing a legal career, the program uses volunteer legal professionals to deliver lessons about the law, engage the students in interactive simulations, and serve as role models and advisors.

A note to individuals interested in volunteering:
Street Law works with teams of volunteers from law firms, corporations, and government agencies. Participating groups provide volunteers, a licensing fee, and some supplies and program enhancements, and Street Law, Inc. provides training, teaching, materials, and technical assistance.

Unfortunately we don’t always have opportunities for individuals. However, sometimes we need volunteers to serve as community resource person for a classroom teacher or other Street Law program. Community resource people are professionals who lend real life experiences to help enhance a Street Law lesson or class. Attorneys, judges, law students, elected officials, community organizers, and law enforcement officers are often utilized as resource people. If this is of interest to you, please send us an email at learnmore@streetlaw.org.

If you represent an organization that works with these groups of young people, Street Law can help. Please contact Yolanda Johnson to learn more about bringing our Legal Life Skills programming to the young people you serve.
