Classroom Law Project prepares youth to become engaged and informed participants in democratic society. Bringing together educators, lawyers and civic leaders, CLP provides timely and fun civic programs to more than 1,000 teachers and 86,000 students.
Bottom Line for Portland
CLP aims to increase the number of new educators enrolled in its programs by 10 percent over the prior year and increase the number of current teachers implementing new programs by 15 percent, reaching an additional 5,000 or more students.
“CLP provides a wealth of resources that allow for discussion of timely, relevant issues. This fresh, issues-oriented approach changed the vibe in my classes. Formerly reluctant students became engaged and participated passionately about contemporary issues that easily connected to the founding of our nation. CLP made this remarkable change possible.” —George Roberts, teacher
