Healy, Langdon T., Ed.; Vontz, Thomas S., Ed.
This ERIC resource is a guide to the array of law-related education (LRE) resources available to teachers. The annotated bibliography offers resources for essential knowledge of the law, innovative teaching methods, and guides to national LRE programs. Included in this collection are abstracts of LRE documents and journal articles, arranged alphabetically by author. Part 1 contains abstracts of LRE teaching materials, resource guide, research documents and journal articles. Part 2 features two ERIC Digests: (1) "Law Magnet Programs" (Paula A. Nessel); and (2) "Teaching about Democratic Constitutionalism" (John J. Patrick). The appendices of Part 3 feature directories that provide contact information for law magnet programs as well as national and state LRE programs. The annotated index of World Wide Web sites offers a useful resource for the law-related education community and information about the ERIC system and its many features. (EH)
