Program Details
Urban Assembly School for Law and Justice (K08X)
Law & Government

Law and justice are the lenses through which subject matter is viewed and academic skills are developed. Our theme reflects our conviction that educating is in itself an act of social justice, and that learning can be amplified when done through the lens of the law.

Ed. Opt. programs admit students across all academic levels. Students are grouped into Low, Middle, and High categories based on a composite of their academic data. One-third of offers are made to students in each category.

About the School

The Urban Assembly School for Law and Justice (SLJ) offers a challenging academic program with an emphasis on law and justice. We offer a nationally recognized college and career readiness curriculum. Through integrated partnerships, supportive relationships, and rigorous coursework, students develop strong communication skills and an understanding of the role law plays in society. SLJ students participate in the democratic process through Student Council, Town Hall meetings, and Youth Court. SLJ graduates are strong readers and writers who think critically, work cooperatively, and question constantly. Families and community members stay involved through an open door policy, frequent home contact by advisors, and monthly family events.
