OJEN Teaching Resources

OJEN’s teaching resources are designed to support Ontario curriculum expectations and are reviewed by lawyers and educators. Below you will find a selection of teaching resources that support law classes, as well as classes like civics, careers and social sciences that engage with law, justice and society. We have chosen these resources from our full library because they contain content and are structured in a way that is appropriate for remote learning. If you are looking for more teaching material, you can also search the complete OJEN resource hub.

Steps to Justice Workshops

Students learn to navigate Community Legal Education Ontario’s excellent Steps to Justice website while finding answers to common legal questions raised by realistic scenarios.

The Top Five

Each year we select five of the most significant Canadian legal decisions, summarize them, and provide discussion questions. This collection of teaching resources is a fantastic record of how the law as a “living tree” interacts with society to help shape social life over time. These cases can provoke discussion and critical thinking to broaden the perspectives of young people.

Other OJEN Resources

  • Cases That Have Changed Society – brief summaries of precedent-setting cases, suitable for jigsaw-type activities.
  • In Brief: Careers in Justice – three progressively more sophisticated learning tasks in which students use the web and work independently to explore the everyday work and educational pathways associated with a wide variety of careers within the justice system.
