How can my donation make a difference?

The Rule of Law Education Centre is a not-for- profit organisation that teaches Australians about the Magna Carta and its underlying principles of the rule of law.  We provide Australian school students with non-partisan, syllabus relevant and contemporary resources together with our signature Law Day Out Excursion Program.  Our resources encourage a culture of lawfulness within the Australian community where students not only support the rule of law in theory but are engaged in supporting and upholding its operation.

 When a society becomes comfortable and complacent, past fundamental principles are commonly forgotten and their significance lost, and it is no different with the rule of law.

Rule of Law Education seeks to explain to high school students why the rule of law is important and students are asked to critically analyse legislation and the work of the legal system using the filter of rule of law principles.

Since we began teaching high school students and established our education based website, we have taught over 30,000 students throughout New South Wales and Queensland and have had over 1.5 million page views on our website.  This is no mean feat for an Institute which relies solely on voluntary donations.
