Kids’ Court Student Coordinator Fellowship

Kids’ Court Student Coordinator Fellowship

Kids’ Court is a service-learning project for law students to teach law-related and civics concepts currently as part of Rose Park Elementary’s after-school programs. The program may change next year to a middle school location. Kids’ Court has been ongoing for nearly a decade, with great influence on classroom behavior, academic performance, and goals for higher education in the community of students that have participated with the program. Additional information about Kids’ Court can be found on its website at http://kidscourt.law.utah.edu/. The Student Coordinator will be responsible for curriculum development, instruction, volunteer coordination and logistics for the academic year.
