Update on Law-Related Education, Spring 1977.
American Bar Association, Chicago, IL. Special Committee on Youth Education for Citizenship.
This is the first issue of a new journal designed to keep elementary and secondary school teachers and students up-to-date with developments in law-related education. The focus of this issue is on equal protection. Two major articles review recent Supreme Court cases and examine historical cases of segregation. Other features explain how schools can get money for innovative programs from Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA) groups; describe a successful district-funded program in Oregon; and list law-related audiovisual materials appropriate for elementary and secondary classes. Two sections entitled Newsclips and Court Briefs contain short reports on topics such as school violence, student social attitudes, rights of nonunion teachers, and lawyer-client confidentiality. Issued three times each school year by the American Bar Association Special Committee on Youth Education for Citizenship, the journal will provide recent information about legal cases, curriculum materials, funding opportunities, project activities, program ideas, coming events, and other news and views in the field. Subscription cost will be approximately five dollars for three volumes issued in January, April, and September. The first several issues will be distributed on a complimentary basis. (Author/AV)
