We take our role in the local community seriously. This includes working with education charities, community groups and taking part in public events.
Working in partnership with The Meriton, a support unit for young mothers, our law enrichment programme provides teaching sessions to raise confidence and aspiration with young women who can be inspiring and academically brilliant, but who often gets sidelined.
IntoUniversity provides local learning centres where young people from disadvantaged postcode areas are inspired to achieve. The Law School provides interactive law sessions for year 8 and year 6 pupils. In 2014 79% of IntoUniversity students progressed to university.
Girls Making History
Girls Making History is a project led by Knowle West Media Centre to encourage girls to embrace technology. As part of a University collaboration, it worked with young women with direct experience of violent relationships, to develop digital prototypes to support others at risk. The Law School supported the project with an interactive session on legal responses to domestic violence.
There are many reasons why not everyone is able to access further education when leaving school. We believe mature students have much to give to the School bringing a wealth of experience and insight into the impact of law on real lives.
