Justice is the topic of Saturday's school violence prevention training session sponsored by the Alabama Center for Law and Civic Education (ACLCE) at Samford University.

The session is part of a 10-part program that began in September and will end in May. Saturday's session will focus on how the U.S. court system was established and how it is used for citizens to obtain justice. Other program topics have dealt with the general themes of authority, responsibility and privacy, all in the context of violence prevention.

About 25 elementary, middle school and high school teachers from Birmingham area schools are participating in the series.

ACLCE is a program of Samford University's Cumberland School of Law.
