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.
