    • Abstract:
      There have been plenty of opportunities to learn law in the Czech Republic but unfortunately only a few of them are effective. Law has been established as compulsory subject at universities and it is taught at secondary schools as well. There are also other sources of legal education such as private courses. We want to show the impact of these methods on the legal literacy of the population. In our presentation we want also to illustrate other possible means the law is presented to non‐lawyers. One of the great methods is using the concept of Street Law, which, in the Czech Republic, is based on university students of Law who teach at secondary or primary schools. There are also projects such as Be Aware of your Civil Rights. We are kind to present the achievements as well as the possible improvements in legal education in the Czech Republic such as using interdisciplinary learning or showing the importance of law in ordinary life. Ha habido muchas oportunidades para aprender Derecho en la República Checa, pero, por desgracia, sólo unas pocas son efectivas. El Derecho se ha convertido en asignatura obligatoria en las universidades, y también se enseña en centros de enseñanza secundaria. Hay, además, cursos privados. Nosotros pretendemos mostrar el impacto de estos métodos en la alfabetización jurídica de la población, así como proponer otras vías de presentar el Derecho a personas no versadas. Una de las metodologías más importantes es la denominada Ley en la Calle. En la República Checa, ésta consiste en que estudiantes de Derecho enseñan en institutos o en escuelas de enseñanza primaria. Por otro lado, hay proyectos como Conozca sus Derechos Civiles. Nos complace presentar los logros obtenidos, así como las mejoras que se pueden implementar en la educación jurídica de la República Checa, como, por ejemplo, usar el aprendizaje interdisciplinario o mostrar la importancia del Derecho en la vida cotidiana.
