Democracy, civics and active participation in the community are not things with which we are born — they must be learned.

Which is why Classroom Law Project brings vital and engaging civics and law-related education programs into Oregon schools, teaching students at all grade levels the values and skills essential to being a participating citizen in our democracy. Each year, our innovative, timely, practical and fun programs involve and inspire over 700 teachers and 50,000 students across Oregon.  We are fortunate to partner with Lewis and Clark Law School.

Thank you! The 2016 Legal Citizen of the Year Award Dinner was a HUGE Success!!


A big round of applause for all who came out to celebrate Chief Justice Tom Balmer, 2016 Jonathan U. Newman Legal Citizen of the Year, and Ms. Nance Case, 2015-16 Civic Educator of the Year. The air was festive and the room packed with friends, family, colleagues, and supporters of two outstanding individuals and the mission of Classroom Law Project. Together we raised a record $103,000 for Civic Education programs in Oregon. We are grateful for all those who attended, and who gave generously.
