Classroom Law Project prepares youth across Oregon to become engaged and informed participants in a democratic society. Bringing together educators, students, the legal community and concerned citizens, CLP provides quality, timely, fun civic education programs for teachers and students.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last school year, we reached more than 1,200 teachers and 97,000 students across Oregon, a 19 percent increase over the previous year. Providing quality professional development for teachers expands their programs’ reach. Our student-centered programs lead to the development of lifelong skills.
"Watching my eighth-grade students testify on the Constitution at the state Capitol on We the People Day was thrilling and nerve-wracking for them and for me, but was an overall emotionally rewarding experience for all of us. I cannot wait to introduce the Constitution to another group of students!"
—Jeff Geissler, teacher
