Street Law

Street Law student volunteers facilitate an innovative teaching program in the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court's juvenile detention center on Friday afternoons during the social studies classes for youth between the ages of 14 and 17. Lessons aim to have the youth think about the law in a new way, and to educate detained juveniles about relevant legal topics, such as discrimination, crime and domestic law just to name a few. The ultimate goal of the program is to help as many detained juveniles as possible avoid relapses into the juvenile justice system because of a lack of knowledge about the legal system.
