Law Related Education (LRE) serves as a tool to help youth connect their values to civic participation and become the kind of active citizens democracy depends on.

The NHBA Law Related Education Program is directed by the Law Related Education Coordinator, Robin E. Knippers. The program serves  thousands of New Hampshire students and teachers. LRE provides curriculum, classroom resources, educational opportunities, interactive projects with attorneys, law firms and schools across New Hampshire.
