Street Law is a community oriented legal education program, serving the Greater Hartford community. Our broader goals include teaching law, mentoring and skill enhancement by pairing law students with public high schools and students in non-traditional settings. Law students teach in structured education settings, bringing practical legal knowledge to students at varying academic levels. Law students are encouraged to work with outside resource people and social service professionals in the community to develop life-skills workshops that assist teens in the evaluation of future education and employment opportunities.
