What is an LRE Education Partner?
A member of legal or teaching professional (or other member of the educational community) committed to fostering cooperation and interaction between the two professions to enhance the educational experience of North Carolina’s schoolchildren by increasing their civic knowledge and participation.
This commitment may be evidenced by service on the NCBA LRE Advisory Committee, contacting LRE to request one of its "people, programs or resources," serving as a classroom speaker, or just being interested in promoting the access LRE provides educators to law-related education
Who should become an LRE Education Partner?
All NC Bar Association members who volunteer to serve on the Law-Related Education Advisory Committee automatically become LRE Education Partners, as do those educators who serve on the committee as Affiliate members.
Teachers requesting LRE "people, programs or resources" in their classrooms will be asked to complete the one-time online registration and become an LRE Education Partner.
Additionally, lawyers and other legal professionals who serve as classroom speakers (including those who do not serve on the LREA Committee) will become registered LRE Education Partners.
