Law-Related Education celebrates 25 years
Honoring its 25th year, the Ohio Center for Law-Related Education 2007 Law & Citizenship Conference will feature celebration and civic education. Conference strands include the Supreme Court, past and future; getting a head start on the historic 2008 elections—keeping pace with the candidates; and Generation YouTube—the legal and social impact of media/technology on students.
The conference, Sept. 23 and 24, will feature topics of interest to the general social studies teacher, as well as information about other OCLRE programs such as the mock congressional hearing program, We the People.
