About Law-Related Education

Law-related education is defined in federal law as “education to equip nonlawyers with knowledge and skills pertaining to the law, the legal process, and the legal system, and the fundamental principles and values on which these are based”. The content of law-related education includes such concepts as justice, authority, equality, property, liberty, responsibility and privacy.  The development of competency in civil discourse, higher level thinking, decision-making, advocacy, critical thinking, analysis, synthesis, and public speaking are all benefits of LRE.  Lastly, LRE promotes a commitment to the rule of law and to democratic values and beliefs.
