Street Law’s Legal Life Skills Program teaches young people and adults vulnerable to racism and injustice about their legal rights and responsibilities. It builds participants’ knowledge, day-to-day life skills, and confidence to help them advocate for themselves and their communities.

Legal Life Skills lessons ask participants to consider the law as it is written and how that may differ from the law as it is applied. Lessons are also designed to provide participants with more information about local laws and related community resources.

These lessons adhere to Street Law’s strict standard of quality, which include comprehensive reviews by educators, legal experts, program participants, an expert in trauma-informed care, and our Community Empowerment and Justice Programs team. The library was reviewed, revised, and updated in 2023.

This teacher license includes access to 20 lesson plans, each including a detailed guide for lesson facilitation, links to instructional materials, lesson-specific instructor notes, and an optional corresponding slide deck.
