“The trouble with Law is Lawyers”

Inspire and motivate your students by delivering Law and Justice education using real buildings, real objects and real people. Students will past, act in the present and change their future.

By working with the National Centre for Citizenship and the Law we are able to offer education packages at a range of legal and heritage sites across the UK in London, the North West and Nottingham. The main focus of this day trip is to educate young people to be responsible citizens by providing access to knowledge of the law and legal careers and how the law can affect the everyday lives of young people.  Understanding the full consequences of breaking the law will enable students to see the impact on the wider community and help them to become more responsible and active citizens.  For those students hoping to enter into a profession in the Justice System this visit is an ideal introduction .
