About Our Program
The D.C. Street Law program offers three separate options: the Street Law: Criminal Justice and Human Rights (offered in the Fall), Street Law: Mock Trial Advocacy (offered in the Spring) and Street Law: Corrections and Community (offered in the Summer). All of the option provide a unique opportunity for the law students to progress in their professional development while at the same time providing a service to the outside community. The program's primary purpose is to provide legal education to laypersons. The law students are the central component in furthering that goal: 1) In the Fall and Spring courses, the law students teach a semester-long elective course in practical law to students in senior high schools throughout the District of Columbia; 2) In the Summer course, the law students teach a semester-long course in practical law to adult learners who are in rehabilitation facilities, transitional housing, or incarcerated.
