Update on Law-Related Education, 1993-1995.
Update on Law-Related Education, v17-19 1993-95
This document consists of 3 volumes (9 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. Seven of the nine issues are devoted entirely to a special theme. The seven themes are: (1) law in American history courses (v17 n2); (2) LRE and the global environment (v17 n3); (3) teachers' and students' civil rights (v18 n2); (4) the status of legal services to the poor (v18 n3); (5) legal issues and principles related to diversity in America (v19 n1); (6) violence associated with attending school (v19 n2);, and (7) federalism (v19 n3). The two remaining issues (v17 n1 and v18 n1) examine, in broad terms, the concept of justice. Many themes in constitutional law are featured. Some articles take a global perspective, evaluating law in various world cultures. Each issue proposes teaching methods that involve class discussions and collaborative learning, such as mock trials, simulated public and Congressional hearings, and other role playing exercises. Many of the lesson plans include student handouts. A cumulative index to the journal (v1-19 1977-1995) is contained v19 n3. (LH)
