Virginia Rules is Virginia’s state-specific, law-related education program for middle and high school students. The purpose of Virginia Rules is to educate young Virginians about Virginia laws and help them develop skills needed to make sound decisions, to avoid breaking laws, and to become active citizens of their schools and communities.
Virginia Rules features lessons designed for middle and high school students, and this web site is designed for use by students, parents, school administrators, and Virginia Rules instructors.
Instructors and administrators can access and download lessons with student worksheets, student topical handouts, and supplemental materials. Administrators and other users can take advantage of the online Juvenile Law Handbook. (Note: the Handbook is being updated; we will post the latest version once review is complete.) Students and parents can use a wealth of information developed just for them, as well as off-site resources of interest.
