Watch the live footage of the speech that landed the founder/CEO of thinkLaw, Colin Seale, one more step closer to achieving his goal. He aspires to make the same high-level critical thinking that is usually reserved for law students and attorneys, accessible to all students regardless of where they come from and who their parents are.
What is thinkLaw?
We know that critical thinking is hard to teach, but it remains one of the most important 21st century skills. New tests require students to apply critical thinking to challenging questions. But critical thinking is still a luxury good: less than 1 of 10 educators teach it and that educator is often at an elite school or only teaches critical thinking to elite students.
thinkLaw closes this gap by helping educators teach critical thinking to ALL students through 25 engaging, standard-aligned lessons based on real-life legal cases. These cases tap into students’ inherent sense of justice and fairness and empower students to do the heavy lifting through critical thinking tasks usually reserved for law students. thinkLaw’s comprehensive program includes teacher guides and tools to allow them to deliver lessons with under 20 minutes of prep time, student workbooks, and 3 sessions of virtual coaching.
thinkLaw is on a mission to have its program implemented in 200 schools by the end of 2016.

There are a number of ways you can help even if you cannot directly implement our program in your organization.
