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 880 teachers and 63,000 students across Oregon.  We are fortunate to partner with Lewis and Clark Law School.
