From our friends: abota_teacherslawlogo_rgb

The ABOTA Foundation’s Teachers Law School (TLS) program is designed for middle and
high school educators with an interest in prioritizing civics and law-related education in the classroom. The TLS sessions
provide teachers with information to help students better understand and appreciate the value and relevance of the
American civil and criminal legal systems, as well as instruct teachers on hot topics pertaining to education law.

Through ABOTA’s Teachers Law School, some of the best and brightest members of the bench and bar, who live and
work with the law every day, share practical realities of the civil and criminal law procedures and systems.
CRF’s Damon Huss will be presenting in Philadelphia, Sacramento, and San Francisco!

October 28 - Corpus Christi, TX
November 4 - Edinburg, TX (Region One)
