About the Program
Street Law is a student text that also serves as a community guide to civic involvement by providing practical information about areas of the law that affect the daily lives of all Americans and U.S. residents. Particularly relevant are the areas of consumer, housing, family, and employment law, along with marriage, and parental rights. As students transition from living with their parents to living on their own or even starting their own families, basic awareness of Street Law subjects will become important in their lives to promote healthy inquiry about public policy and the law.
