K-12 Education Programs

Welcome to the K-12 Law-Related Education Homepage of the Pennsylvania Bar Association Web site! The Pennsylvania Bar Association’s law-related education programs are designed to help Pennsylvania schools lay a foundation for teaching civics and government in the classroom. The PBA partners with the National Constitution Center, national civic education organizations, local bar associations, judges and lawyers to accomplish this goal. The cornerstone LRE projects, include Celebrate the Constitution, Project PEACE, Law Day, Mock Trial and Stepping Out.

The K-12 Law-Related Education Homepage is designed to be an informational resource for educators in law-related education. It provides actual lesson plans, links to grant opportunities and other law-related education organizations and information about getting involved in the PBA’s law-related education programs. Please take a few moments to explore this area and see what the PBA has to offer.
