LAWYERS ASSISTING CIVIC EDUCATION TEACHERS

A strong school curriculum on the subject of Civic Education is an essential condition to an informed and active civic participation. Here’s why, we joined forces with Street Law, DXC Technology and UnitedLex, and with the support of the US Embassy in Bulgaria launched a project called ‘Lawyers assisting Civic Education Teachers’. This project aims at supporting the work of civic education teachers in local schools by including lawyersas their assistants in class when teaching topics that focus on legal issues. As a part of the project, we are preparing educational materials  to assist the joint work of teachers and lawyers. Some topics that will be thought in class include: the rule of law, contract law, separation of powers, justice systems, etc.

On the 1st and 2nd of December, lawyers from DXC Technology Bulgaria and five teachers from around the country underwent training. In 2022, five civic education lessons will take place in Sofia, Petrich, Montana, Pernik and Chelopech.
Street Law Inc. is an organization based in Georgetown, US, working in the sphere of civic education with a focus on legal culture and democratic governance for more than three decades.

The project is supported by the US Embassy in Bulgaria.
