The Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project (MBP) is now accepting applications for Fall 2020!
The MBP is a 4-credit letter-graded course at Mitchell Hamline School of Law which allows law students to teach Constitutional Law to Saint Paul Public Schools High School Students.
If you are looking to get out of the law school classroom, learn the law in a unique and challenging way, develop skillsthat will make you a better lawyer, make a difference in the lives of youth in our community, and become a part of an exceptional program that furthers constitutional literacy around the county, this program is for YOU!
This dynamic and exciting program allows MBP Fellows to “take over” a senior high government class for 9-weeks and teach about the 1st and 4th amendments.
In August 2020, law students who are accepted into the program will participate in a teaching “boot camp” to prepare for the semester, as such, prior teaching experience is not required.
Law students selected to be a MBP Fellow will follow a base curriculum, create lesson plans, conduct classes, and grade assignments. Fellows teach in the high school for approximately one-hour per day, five days per week, for nine weeks beginning in September of 2020.
Coinciding with their high school placement, Fellows participate in a weekly seminar taught by Mitchell Hamline faculty. The weekly seminar focuses on constitutional law for high school students, including free speech for students and search and seizure in school. During the seminar, Fellows learn about the constitutional law cases they will be teaching and develop teaching strategies and lesson plans.
