WE ARE FUNDRAISING so that our International Law group can take an exhibition on women’s rights to the UN and for our first Model Law Commission in the Autumn. Find out how you can help us!
We are a youth project working with teenagers to explore issues of legal identity and the democratic legitimacy of the legal system within the UK. The project seeks to empower young people, who may feel distanced from the world of courts and lawyers.
These courts are theirs, to protect their rights. A representative, committed group of students can demonstrate to the London legal world why that is, and must remain, true.
To see us on the Supreme Court website visit: http://www.supremecourt.gov.uk/docs/pr_1101.pdf
Those involved in the project are divided into three groups, which are:
- Equality and Diversity
- International Law
- Political Agency
The students meet with legal experts, undertake research with their peers and take part in dynamic workshops to empower them to voice their own thoughts and opinions. The project also contains opportunities for professional development and chances to increase practical skills. The young people we work with are from the areas of London with the highest child poverty and we work with schools and colleges in these areas to recruit students who would benefit from the opportunities involved with the project.
