LRE People Subcommittee
LRE People Subcommittee puts teachers in touch with lawyers and other legal professionals who can bring law-related topics to life in the classroom.
When a teacher requests the involvement of an attorney in their classroom – as a career day speaker, a moot court team coach, a presenter on a specific area of the law, etc. – the LRE People Subcommittee responds.
Working from a list of volunteer lawyers who are registered as LRE Education Partners, the Coordinator identifies an appropriate legal professional to respond to the teacher’s request and puts the two in touch with one another, typically by e-mail or telephone, to finalize the details.
Following the classroom visit, LRE then follows-up with the teacher to learn how the attorney’s presentation went and what suggestions they might make to assist other legal professionals who might visit their classrooms in the future.
Important Note: LRE people help educators teach law-related subjects – they do not provide legal advice to teachers, schools, students, parents or organizations in the context of their LRE volunteer service. If you would like a referral to an attorney, please contact the NCBA Lawyer Referral Service.
