The Supreme Court Summer Institute equips classroom teachers with strategies and content to strengthen and expand the way they teach about the Supreme Court of the United States and its cases.

Six days of educational activities to strengthen and expand teacher instruction about the Court.

Since 1995, Street Law and the Supreme Court Historical Society have joined forces to offer this annual professional development institute to secondary school social studies teachers.

Teachers participate in six days of educational activities to strengthen and expand their instruction about the Court. The agenda features recent cases and unrivaled access to a stellar lineup of Supreme Court experts and advocates who co-deliver sessions with Street Law’s staff.

The network of Supreme Court Summer Institute alumni is more than 1,500 teachers strong and spans all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Collectively, our Institute alumni reach over 150,000 students each year that they teach.
