Excellent (and super fun) comprehensive research project for any Street Law, Law, Criminal Justice, or Civics course that deals with the responsibilities of a lawyer. Students LOVE this project!! It is such a blast- and they learn so much!
Students choose a lawyer from their favorite law-related movie or tv show to research the responsibilities of practicing law. This is easily Common Core aligned, requiring use of primary/secondary sources and is writing oriented.
I offered extra credit to my students to present their poster.
Aligns with Street Law textbook but can easily be done without the textbook.
Very detailed rubric included with specific directions for the project.
