Legal Experts in Schools is a skills-based employee volunteering programme designed to increase young people’s awareness and understanding of the law. Legal professionals from law firms, in-house legal teams or chambers deliver six one-hour sessions in a local secondary school, using our specially written resources to facilitate interactive and discussion-based activities with small groups of students.
Our modules have been written by education experts and fact-checked by specialist legal professionals; they cover a wide range of legal topics with a focus on areas of law relevant to young people, including:
- Consumer law
- Family law
- Human rights
- Social media and the law
- Youth justice
- EU law
“I would recommend getting involved because it has taught me old and new laws, and it is a great way to learn about the law before you step into the real world.” Student, Platanos College
“It’s great to get out of the office and talk to other people in the company, and really engage with the kids, who actually want to be involved in a debate and have discussions. My experience has been amazing, and it has developed my skills in facilitation, communication and time-management; skills which I don’t always get to use in the company.” Volunteer lawyer, Centrica Energy.
