Talking Law Workshops

Talking Law is a series of workshops that teach ESL students about the law. It can be adapted for a range of language levels. The Talking Law series helps ESL students build skills for dealing with legal issues at the same time as developing their vocabulary and confidence.

In a Talking Law workshop, a lawyer will visit your classroom and focus on one area of law. The workshop package provides activities that you can run in class to prepare your students for a lawyer’s visit. It also includes discussion scenarios which the lawyer will use to discuss relevant legal issues.

OJEN has five Talking Law workshops. They cover:

  • employment law
  • human rights law
  • criminal law
  • immigration & citizenship law
  • civil law

Each Talking Law workshop package includes:

  • simplified definitions of legal terms
  • vocabulary exercises
  • discussion scenarios
  • A local legal resources handout for students and their families

If you are interested in having a Talking Law Workshop delivered to your ESL students, please contact OJEN at lbrown@ojen.ca.
