Education Week 2016

Leeds Legal Education Week 2016

28 November – 2 December

In association with Ahead Partnership, Leeds Legal Education Week focuses on inspiring pupils in deprived inner city areas with the aim of raising their awareness of the world of work, specifically the legal world. During the week the volunteers are visiting several primary schools and each volunteer will spend a day with a Year 6 class (10-11 year olds). In conjunction with the teachers, they will help to run focused workshops, offering first-hand accounts of working within a law firm and the variety of roles that exist. Activities will focus on broadening the children’s horizons about the choices and opportunities open to them, and helping them view work and employment as a positive option.

  • Staff skills development
