Secondary Education Resources

The Rule of Law Education Program encourages active participation by teaching Australian students about the rule of law. 

A society that supports the rule of law is not one composed of uncritical and obedient citizens; rather it is one whose citizens understand and respect just laws, are aware of their function and know how to engage with them constructively and how to challenge them as needed, within the appropriate mechanisms and institutions.
