Lawyers in Schools website launched
Lawyers in Schools is a unique employee volunteering programme that places lawyers in to schools to deliver public legal education.
Now in its 10th year, Lawyers in Schools is very proud to be working with over 20 law firms and in-house counsels across England. As the programme has grown, the Citizenship Foundation has continued to develop the resources and support available for the participating law firms and schools.
Most recently, we have updated all of our units and developed two new units: Family Law and Housing Law. We are also pleased to welcome two new participating organisations to the programme - Stephenson Harwood and Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council - who will begin working with their partner schools this academic year.
Our brand new website www.lawyersinschools.org.uk provides lots of information about Lawyers in Schools including: how it works, the many benefits for lawyers, teachers and students; a film about the programme; latest news and case studies; a sample resource and much more.
The website also has a members' only area that enables participants to login to access information about their partner schools and sessions. Participants can also download the resources and training materials for the sessions, and news articles about the topics they will be discussing with the students.
