About the Program
We are proud to participate in the statewide Justice Teaching Initiative. The program pairs legal professionals with local elementary, middle and high school students to educate them about their constitutional rights and the American justice system.
How It Was Created
Justice Teaching was created by then Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice R. Fred Lewis in response to state and national surveys that suggested Americans know little about the operation the American justice system and the basic principles behind our country’s constitutional institutions and structures.
Our Justice Teaching presentation includes an engaging interactive discussion and role playing exercise designed to teach kids about the importance of the Bill of Rights. The goal is to give them an appreciation of our democracy and expose them to the legal profession. The class lasts an hour.
