Benefits of participation:

  • Teachers receive case information, policy analysis tools, interactive strategies, and classroom materials.
  • Students receive training on issues, policy analysis tools, and case materials.
  • Students also have the opportunity to meet public officials, legal experts, policymakers, and peers from different schools and discuss current policy questions.

This year’s important dates are:

October 19, 2018– student training for 2-4 student delegates from each school (downtown Chicago)

November 16, 2018 – conference for all student delegates** (downtown Chicago)
Equal Justice Under Law is a program of the Constitutional Rights Foundation Chicago and is supported in part by a grant from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation.

**There is no limit on the number of students who participate in school-based activities. The maximum number of student delegates per school will be determined by the total number of registered schools for the program. In general, delegations normally include 14-16 students per school.  Exceptions can sometimes be made on a case-by-case basis.
