ABOUT ACE This program includes multiple educational presentations designed for civic and community groups/forums. Studies document the limited knowledge Americans hold about our courts and the US Constitution. As knowledge of the courts increases, so too does trust and confidence in the judicial branch.
The Louisiana Center for Law and Civic Education’s ACE Program includes a series of law-related activities developed for adult, nonpartisan group presentations by members of the legal community. Both attorneys and judges are encouraged to participate. Each activity ranges from 30 to 40 minutes in length and includes a warm up exercise to have participants think and/or discuss certain issues or dilemmas prior to the presentation. Most activities include a PowerPoint and an interactive component to involve the audience in the process.
