Teaching Law to the Public: Catalogue of Law School Projects.
National Inst. for Citizen Education in the Law, Washington, DC.
This catalog was developed to provide useful information about the many "Teaching Law to the Public" law school-based projects operating around the country in 1993-94. Aimed at law school project staff members, it is a handy reference to other law school programs. The catalog also is intended as a guide for everybody involved in law-related education, especially those who are interested in initiating these types of projects at other law schools. The volume contains a description of each project listed in alphabetical order by law school. Each description includes the names of contact people, a description of the project's activities, materials, populations served, and funding sources. The catalog opens with a description of the National Institute for Citizen Education in the Law, which engages in course development, teacher training, and technical assistance for law schools, school systems, departments of corrections, juvenile justice agencies, bar associations, legal service organizations, community groups, and local governments. The description lists the Institute's publications, videos, and law school program materials. The catalog identifies 37 law schools that have initiated programs in law-related education. (JD)
