Activities for Schools

The Liverpool Law School offers a range of talks, presentations and workshops to schools and colleges, designed to support students’ progression into higher education. These can be delivered either on campus or within your school or college.

Law Taster Days

Our Law Taster Days are designed for Year 10, 11 and 12 pupils who would be in the first generation of their families to go on to higher education. The Law Taster Days offer an exciting introduction to university life, the study of law, and the work of the Liverpool Law Clinic.

Pathways to Law programme

Liverpool Law School recently partnered with The Sutton Trust to deliver its ‘Pathways to Law’ annual programme to support students aspiring to a career in law. Pathways to Law is a pioneering initiative designed to widen access to the legal profession and is open to students from the Merseyside area in Years 10 and 12. Students will participate in a programme of legal workshops and undertake a week’s work experience placement with a Liverpool law firm as part of the programme. For more information contact the Widening Participation and Outreach Team.

StreetLaw Project

Our StreetLaw project offers secondary school pupils in Years 9-12 who may be interested in further study of the law the chance to build their knowledge of what the law is, how it is applied, and what it is like to study at University of Liverpool, all in a relaxed and stimulating setting. Pupils develop the confidence to talk about the law, while the students delivering the session build valuable transferrable employability skills, and contribute to the wider outreach work of the Law school. Workshops can be tailored to the needs of a range of year groups, and can be planned so as to compliment teaching on A/AS level courses. Examples of topics covered by the workshops include:

  • Human rights law
  • Medical negligence
  • Police powers
  • Tort law
  • European Union law
  • Family law

Both the seminar and subject talks were very interesting and engaging for the students and gave them a true insight into university life.
