Centre for Education, Law and Society

Welcome to the website for the Centre for Education, Law and Society (CELS).  Our purpose is to provide information for educators and researchers interested in furthering legal literacy and law-related education in schools and in the community.

On this site you will find recently developed teaching and learning resources on such topics ranging from Aboriginal land claims to human rights, cyberbullying, and environmental sustainability.

We also share our current research and outline our courses and professional development opportunities.  

Law-related education:

  • Promotes an understanding of the role law plays in society and in our lives, including notions of rights, responsibilities, justice and equality.
  • Develops critically aware and socially responsible citizens who can participate effectively in a legally regulated world and effect positive change in our communities.
