Summary

The report examines law-related education materials and programs in the United States and evaluates roles played by various agencies and institutions in law-related education. The document consists of an introductory summary and six subsequent chapters. Chapter I defines the purpose of the Study Group on Law-Related Education as summarizing the condition of law-related education and proposing options for the United States Office of Education (OE) in the field. Chapter II characterizes law-related education as education to promote knowledge and understanding of the law, legal processes, and the legal system, and to enable people to be more informed and effective citizens. Chapter III presents an overview of law-related education as a separate course of study and as an integral part of civics, social studies, history, home economics, and business education. Chapter IV reviews federal support of law-related education. The final chapter presents recommendations for OE including that it should fund law-related education activities such as teacher preparation, educational conferences, research and evaluation, limited curriculum development, and coordination with other agencies. Appendices, which conclude the document, include summaries of national law-related education projects. (DB)
