Welcome to the OJEN website!
Check out our classroom resources
Did you know that OJEN has over 200 classroom resources available on this site? Some classroom resources are short lesson plans and student handouts, while others are in-depth multi-module resources on a specific area of law. All OJEN classroom resources are linked to the curriculum and available for free download in English or French.

You can book your next class visit to an Ontario courthouse using our online Courthouse Visit request form. Interested in having a lawyer or paralegal speak about a specific area of law with your class? Complete our online Book a Speaker form and we will find someone in your community who is available to visit.
If you are ready to sign up your class for a mock trial or mock appeal, please check out the OBA-OJEN Competitive Mock Trial or OJEN’s Charter Challenge. Both programs are available province-wide and provide a rich educational experience for high school students.
Do you teach an ESL or special education class? OJEN modifies and adapts some of our classroom resources and justice education projects for specific youth audiences. Contact us if you are interested in learning more.
Get involved with OJEN
There are many ways to get involved with OJEN. We offer great training for educators and are always interested in hearing from teachers and school boards who would like to host us for a professional development workshop. Educators often participate on OJEN Committees throughout the province. We can put you in touch with an existing local committee or help you start a new one in your community.
