One-Day LRE Conferences. Bar/School Partnership Programs Series.
Erickson, Mike; And Others
Since 1979, a coalition of lawyers and educators in Sacramento, California has put on a one-day law-related education (LRE) conference in the local courthouse that draws hundreds of students from area high schools. The conference includes mock trial and moot court competitions, panels, debates, and simulations. This handbook was developed by the steering committee that directs the conference in response to requests from school districts and local bar associations that desire to start similar programs. The handbook contains narratives describing what was done in Sacramento (including information on steering committee selection and responsibilities, activities for the conference, general administrative considerations, school contacts, evaluation, public relations, and funding) and tips on how other communities might put on a successful program. The handbook also includes sample documents (letters, forms, questionnaires) that might be used in organizing and administering such a conference. (JB)
