 About this conference

The Law & Citizenship Conference is an annual statewide gathering of teachers, professors, lawyers, and other civic and law-related education professionals who come together to share curriculum, effective teaching strategies, best practices, and the latest hot topic issues important to teachers. Teachers leave the conference prepared to spark lively classroom discussions and strengthen students' analytical skills. A great way to start the school year with new content, lessons, and ideas!  


Questions can be referred to Ryan Suskey at or 614-485-3506.
