Somewhere in your high school, a student yearns to learn more about the law and government. Like many other students in Virginia, this student seeks an authentic law-related experience that expands his or her legal knowledge in a creative and analytical way. It is these students who will become our next generation of attorneys, judges, government officials, business leaders, and law enforcement officers.
The Virginia Law Related Education Institute was founded to provide these students with authentic law-related educational opportunities. Through our flagship program, the Virginia High School Mock Trial Competition, teams of students from throughout Virginia compete in the ultimate law-related project-based learning experience. The competition is co-sponsored by the Center for Legal and Court Technology at the College of William and Mary Law School, and is affiliated with the National High School Mock Trial Competition. Early registration for the competition is open until October 15, 2017.
We also provide law-related workshops to both teachers and students. From introducing educators to mock trial as project-based learning, to teaching students about multiple legal topics, our programs align with Virginia Department of Education standards and focus on teaching Twenty-First Century skills.
