Welcome to the 2020/2021 School Year

LRE Is Here for You Live or Remote

School has started. For some students, this means returning to the classroom in person, others are continuing with remote learning, while some students are returning to a hybrid model.

The Law Related Education Committee (“LRE”) wants to help teachers excel at teaching civics at all grade levels. Request a lawyer or judge for either an in person or remote interactive lesson for your class! Contact Robin E. Knippers, the NHBA’s LRE Coordinator. We offer lesson plans or will tailor a lesson/speaker to meet your current curriculum.
