Update on Law-Related Education, v1-16 1977-1992
This document consists of the first 16 volumes (47 issues) of a serial devoted to law-related education (LRE) that offers background information on a wide range of legal issues as well as teaching strategies for LRE. Issues of the magazine focus on the law as it affects schools and young people, with articles on school discipline, juvenile justice, the legal rights of students, youth at risk, and drugs in the schools. Many themes in constitutional law with special emphasis on the First and Fourth Amendments, the Civil Rights Amendments, the separation of powers, the constitutional framework for declaring war, and the Rehnquist Court are featured. Some issues take a global perspective with articles on law in world cultures and international law. Special areas of the law including intellectual property, family law, privacy rights, and corrections are outlined in other issues. The material covers themes as they relate to the law such as sports, religion, discrimination, justice, ethics, and democracy. Each issue proposes teaching methods that involve class discussions, collaborative learning, mock trials, map exercises, and resource people. Many of the lesson plans include student handouts such as background sheets, cartoons, puzzles, and worksheets. (JD)
