Prof. Richard L. Roe

Retired Professor of Law, Georgetown University Law Center. He received his J.D. degree in 1977 from the University of Maine School of Law and A.B. from Yale College in 1969, majoring in Latin American Studies.

Professor Roe directed the Street Law program from 1983-2018, in which law students teach semester-long elective courses in District of Columbia high schools, correctional settings and drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers. Street Law employs innovative, interactive teaching methodology that models due process of law and fundamental constitutional and democratic values. Professor Roe now applies this methodology in a variety of educational settings, including trainings of university faculty and PhD students, criminology professionals, law school clinical and experiential programs, and early childhood programs in the US and internationally.
