c2cschool3A special thanks to Kevin Mayer who worked with 32 AP U.S. history students from Ramon Cortines School Of Visual and Performing Arts in Downtown Los Angeles. Kevin presented the equal protection lesson and moot court activity from CRF's Courtroom to Classroom program (C2C). C2C is a great way for attorneys to go into the classroom with a minimal time commitment but a big return from increasing students' exposure to constitutional issues. "This program was an extraordinary success today," Kevin says, "and I thank Mr. Brandon Cabezas and his exceptional students for a wonderful learning experience!" For more information about C2C visit the web page.

c2cmclain2On Monday, March 24, James Aquilina, Jon Gordon, and Marjorie Steinberg engaged 120 middle school students in learning about the Constitution and Bill of Rights using CRF curriculum. According to students, “James is a really cool teacher,” “Jon is fun and made me laugh while I was learning,” and “Judge Steinberg is the smartest person I ever met.” Lakeview Charter teachers and administrators expressed gratitude, “You don’t know how much this meant to our students. Having the chance to meet and interact with people of this caliber is a rare opportunity for these kids and we thank the volunteers and CRF from the bottom of our hearts.”
