Law Week in the High Schools: Law Day Lesson for Teachers and Visiting Attorneys

The American Bar Association's Theme for 2014 is "American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters" The ABA noted that we are approaching the 50th anniversaries of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The lesson developed by DELREC is focused on these two Acts. It also includes a case study and Constitutional Amendment passed in Delaware last year concerning felon disenfranchisement. The case study for the lesson was developed by Professor Robert L. Hayman, Jr., Widener University School of Law and a member of DELREC’s Board. He also served as an advisor for the lesson.
