Title: Street Law: An Interdisciplinary Approach.

Lead Presenter: Lucy Quinn



Session Abstract: The Street Law program at Melbourne Law School (MLS) in Melbourne, Australia, is a credit-bearing subject for law students that is delivered by faculty members of MLS in collaboration with faculty members of Melbourne Graduate School of Education (MGSE). Students in the Street Law program undertake a series of 7 seminars at MLS before visiting partner high schools to deliver three lessons on areas of law of interest and relevance to young people. As a result of the interdisciplinary nature of Street Law at MLS, the program places a significant emphasis on working with law students to ensure that, in addition to understanding the legal content they will be delivering to high school students, they have the skills and knowledge to develop effective and engaging lesson plans. This session will focus on the interdisciplinary aspects of the MLS Street Law program, as well as providing an overview of the program itself (including history, structure, and assessment regime).
