Street Law Professional Development Workshop:
Federal Courts and the Equal Protection Clause

March 2, 2023

High school social studies teachers (public, private and parochial) are invited to attend this workshop, focused on the federal court system, foundational constitutional concepts, and engaging current issues!

The Fourteenth Amendment guarantees Americans equal protection of the laws. But what exactly does “equal protection” mean? Explore this important question with legal experts from the federal courts, participate in case study activities, and apply what you have learned in a moot court of a case currently before the U.S. Supreme Court, Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina.



Registration is now open and will close on February 1, 2023.

You will be notified of acceptance by Feb 6.

NOTE that registration does not mean acceptance.
