Young Lawyers Workshop

Year 7 & 8 students learn about a career in law

A group of students from years 7 and 8 have participated in a Young Lawyers workshop.

Here is some feedback from the students who were involved:

I liked everything about the workshop, however I particularly enjoyed the role play. I recommend this workshop to anyone who is interested in the law as we learnt so much in one day! I learnt about many different laws and the different techniques used to question a witness.

I learnt about assault is causing someone to fear violence and that battery is touching someone without their permission.

I really enjoyed the games as I was learning at the same time. I learnt about so many different laws and was really surprised that there are so many.
