Education Fortnight November 2017
Volunteers from across the legal profession in Leeds, including David Cowgill, the deputy president of Leeds Law Society, participated in “World of Work” days in local primary schools across Leeds, as part of Leeds Law Society’s Education Fortnight, between 6 and 17 November.
The initiative, now in its 11th year, aims to broaden the children’s horizons about the choices and opportunities open to them in the legal sector, through a series of focussed workshops. Cowgill said that he was really pleased that Leeds Law Society continues to work with Ahead Partnership to put the event together.
“The students were really engaged and genuinely interested, asking lots of questions throughout the day,” he said. “The day was very rewarding and it was great to meet so many children that were eager to learn and having some very clear ideas for what they wanted to do in the future. They all got involved and were very inquisitive, and the teachers and staff managed the day really well.
” I found it to be a very worthwhile experience and all the children seemed to benefit from the day.”
