D.C. Street Law Program
Since 1972, the D.C. Street Law Clinic has provided law-related educational services in the District of Columbia and has served as a model for Street Law programs both nationally and internationally. The Clinic's purpose is to provide legal education to laypersons while also aiding in the professional development of the law students. The Clinic seeks to provide a greater understanding of the law to those outside the legal profession and promote the use of interactive educational methods to develop academic, critical thinking, and civic skills. The law students, as law teachers to DC high school students and community members, are an integral part of these efforts.
