Young Lawyers Summer School

Over the course of the Young Lawyers Summer School students aged 11-14 will have the opportunity to explore questions of what law is, how laws are made, and how courts and the justice system work, as well as getting a taste of a variety of different legal areas including criminal, contract and human rights law. 

As well as being lots of fun, and giving students a first look at a possible career path, an important goal of the Young Lawyers course is to develop a core set of transferable skills. The advocacy and debating elements of the event, for example, will stimulate students’ skills of analysis, teamwork, and public speaking (as well as giving a great confidence boost).

This course will give students the opportunity to take their first steps towards a legal career in an extremely lively, challenging and enjoyable environment together with others who have an interest in law or who are keen to learn about it. The tutors are friendly, engaging and experienced at working with younger students, and will ensure that everyone feels confident and comfortable in participating.

Practical Details

While the coronavirus pandemic is ongoing, and as long as there remains a risk of disruption, all courses will be held online, rather than in-person.

The Young Lawyers Summer School is open to students aged 11 – 14, and will take place 29th – 30th July, and repeated 5th – 6th August 2021.

The online course is two days in length, and teaching hours on each day will run from 10.00am till 3.30pm, with a lunch break.

These are live online events, with small seminar groups offering fully interactive classroom discussion and debate (much as you would normally expect from our in-person courses). The events will not be recorded, so it is essential that you are able to attend during the course hours, and that you have a reliable audio and video internet connection.

The cost for this course is £180, and you can reserve your place with a 25% non-refundable deposit. The remainder of the payment is due eight weeks in advance of the course start date. Please see here for full booking terms and conditions.
