Street Law, Inc. has been a part of my professional life and those of my colleagues for many years. Throughout this time, they have consistently converted a relatively modest amount of funding into big results. In the area of promoting rule of law and access to justice, their tried and tested approaches find purchase and yield results around the globe. I would be hard pressed to name a similar nonprofit that has generated so much impact with the resources that they have had at their disposal.

Street Law is a great organization that helps students understand the knowledge and skills needed to understand law and how government should work effectively. I've worked with Street Law and students from a local high school through my corporate job. Street Law does a great job to engage legal departments in the corporate environment and collaborate with them to present a meaningful day for the students. The program is phenomenal and the students are very engaging. Street Law is a great partnership to engage with and show tremendous appreciation for their supporters. N.Macdonald

Street Law, Inc., is an awesome nonprofit that helps children, adults and countries learn and understand local and applicable laws in a way that increases knowledge and use of critical thinking skills. Once learned, these skills are applicable in so many areas of life and totally transferable to important advocacy and life skills.

Street Law is a wonderful nonprofit with a teach-the-teacher model. They provide teaching materials and workshops to train lawyers and law students to go out into the community to teach legal concepts to non lawyers in high schools and community organizations. It's a very lean operation, but the teach-the-teacher model enables it to punch well above its weight in terms of impact on civic education worldwide.

Their lofty vision of ways to make meaningful change in our communities is matched only by their thoughtful strategies and effective execution.

This organization does amazing work encouraging students from under served communities to consider the law as a profession. It creates fun and interactive lessons that teach students about their rights and responsibilities. Street Law works to make civics and the law interesting and accessible throughout the United States and in many other countries around the world. The staff are truly passionate about their work. I have worked with and supported Street Law for many years and I strongly recommend this organization.

Street Law offers a variety of wonderful programs. The diversity pipeline program is the one that I am most familiar with. It is an amazing program designed to introduce groups of diverse high school students to various aspects of the law and career pathways within the legal profession. Students benefit from participation in the program as it provides an opportunity to connect with lawyers and other legal professionals to learn about how the law impacts their daily lives and also creates awareness of career opportunities within the law.

Street Law provides first rate classroom materials and staff development that is unparalleled in the business. The annual summer seminar is an intensive immersion for both the rookie teacher and the experienced veteran. Street Law led the way in providing materials for the new AP Government Redesign by providing easy to use break downs of the 15 essential SCOTUS cases as identified by college board. I was able to develop a Moot Court program at my school thanks to their support. The kids in my Moot Court Program argued in the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals and that would not have been possible without the support of Street Law!

I participated in the Supreme Court Summer Institute in June of 2000. I have attended a lot of professional development workshops over the years, and this five day program still ranks as the single greatest experience of professional development.
Unlike many other programs, I was treated as an intelligent professional. I was taught information that I still use in my classroom. And, I was inspired to regularly continue to pursue knowledge about the Supreme Court.
