Every student should have knowledge of the law.
Any student can have a career in the justice system.
DELREC partners with teachers and attorneys to write model lessons that are engaging, relevant, and which meet Delaware’s Civics Standards. From kindergarten through high school, we are developing lessons which build on one-another through the years. Students learn vital skills in critical thinking, analysis, synthesis, civil discourse, and oral argument all while learning about the law and their role in our democracy.
DELREC brings attorneys to classrooms and classrooms to attorneys. We know that exposure, experiences, and relationships are powerful guides, whether students simply want to learn about the law or whether they want to pursue careers in the legal system. We offer a variety of options for students to interact with our state’s diverse and knowledgeable attorneys.
Delaware already has many organizations and opportunities for students to explore their interests in the law. We arrange them all in one place, and by grade-level, to make it easier for students, parents, and teachers to find the right programs. At every age, whether through internships, field trips, or student activism, there is something for every student.
We cannot and do not wish to do this work alone. We want to highlight partners across the state already working to bring the law to our students. Do you have a program for students that you want us to include? We’d love to talk!
