A Level Playing Field DVD & Instructors Guide

The Arkansas Bar Association has produced A Level Playing Field: Why the American Legal System Matters to You, which includes a DVD and Instructor’s Guide covering four core principles of the American Judicial System. The material is intended for use in secondary education classes throughout the state of Arkansas. The materials are ideal for Civics, American Government or History, Pre-Law, and other Social Studies courses.

The fast-paced DVD includes sports references and was produced with an eye toward keeping students’ attention and interest. A short excerpt from the DVD can be seen on YouTube at the following site:
