BLOOMINGTON, Ill.— Illinois Wesleyan University Kristine Condon, Class of 1984, has been selected as one of the 60 teachers to attend the Supreme Court Summer Institute.
The Supreme Court Summer Institute is open to teachers in the field of law-related and civic education, and is co-sponsored by the Supreme Court Historical Society and Street Law, Inc., a not-for profit organization based in Washington, D.C. The program provides practical, participatory education about law, democracy and human rights. Participants will learn from lawyers, reporters and scholars of the U.S. Supreme Court.
At the June 13-17 session, Condon will study U.S. Supreme Court cases in detail. Teaching methods related to the court are also in on the docket. Participants in the summer Institute will visit the Supreme Court and attend a reception there as well. Typically this is an event for K-12 faculty, however, two slots per session were made available to community college faculty this year.
