Following the precept that strong citizenship education requires strong law education, the Special Committee on Youth Education for Citizenship (YEFC) of the American Bar Association compiled this introduction to programs and resources in pre-college law education. The objectives of law education, described in Section I, include developing analytical skills, moral and ethical values, and an appreciation of the legal process; teaching information about law; and encouraging responsible political participation. YEFC, as described in Section II, facilitates and encourages programs and projects, generates materials, and supports research. Current YEFC projects and publications noted in this section are the results of these objectives and policies. Twelve representative law-oriented projects of the 200 throughout the country are described in Section III. Section IV lists teacher training programs for law education. Section V updates information (Working Notes, #1) to Bar Associations on the role they can play to support law education programs. ED 073 978 is a related document. (JH)
