Everyday Law Workshops

Everyday Law uses simplified classroom activities to introduce legal concepts to young people in an accessible way. Because they were originally developed for Ontario’s Grade 11 Workplace level law course (CLU3E), they are easily adapted for use in community or ESL contexts.

When we run Everyday Law workshops, we connect the audience with a legal professional who can introduce the material and answer their questions. It’s a great opportunity to build connections with people working in the legal world.

Everyday Law topics include:

  • Children’s Rights
  • Search and Seizure in Schools
  • Wrongful Termination
  • Aboriginal Treaty Right
  • Sexual Assault
  • Criminal Law
  • Freedom of Expression and Hate Speech
  • Custody and Child Support
  • Same Sex Marriage
  • Wrongful Convictions
  • Cameras in the Courtroom
  • Sentencing Circles
  • Charter Rights
  • Social Host Liability
  • Equality Rights …and more

Each lesson plan includes teaching strategies and a summary of a case. Students will learn how the law intersects with their own lives.
