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 options provide a unique opportunity for the law students to progress in their professional development while at the same time providing a service to the community. Street Law’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 public and charter high schools throughout the District of Columbia; 2) In the summer course, the law students teach a semester-long course in practical law to juvenile and adult learners who are under court ordered probation, or are in rehabilitation facilities, or transitional housing.
