CUA’s Street Law teachers work as a team to develop lesson plans and curriculum for Archbishop Carroll High School’s “Law and Social Justice” course. Each law student-teacher goes into the high school classroom at least once each week to teach and discuss basic principles and practical applications of the law. In addition, Street Law members coach after-school mock trial teams at two area Catholic high schools, culminating in a spring interschool competition held in CUA’s Slowinski Courtroom. Through lesson planning, teaching, and mock trial coaching, Street Law teachers must consider the legal knowledge they gain in the law school classrooms in new ways, while providing invaluable mentorship to the high school students they serve.
