Law Abiding Students

Year 12 students visited the University of Law in Leeds where they took part in activities including exploring confessions and rights when arrested, PACE (police and criminal evidence act), writing an opening argument for the defence and they even became the defence barristers for The Bridgewater Four! They then rounded off the visit with a debate on ‘Should the UK Police be armed’.

Humayra Begum won a one-week work experience placement at Plexus (a Leeds based solicitors) and Jake Frost and Matt Liddle McGhee took the floor as keynote speakers. All students won prizes / freebies and had a fantastic day meeting barristers and practising solicitors.
