Street Law at LYIT: Student-Led Public Legal Education For All
29th November 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm
This webinar will comprise an introductory overview in the potential of Street Law as a sustainable form of public legal education for school and other community organisations. Public legal education includes all activities which provide opportunities for the education of members of the public on the law and legal issues of concern to them. In addition it is a form of civic education where the audiences also learn how the law works, their role in it and potential career opportunities. Street Law in LYIT has been particularly successful with second level transition year groups as it specifically focuses on audiences who would not otherwise have access to this information. This webinar will outline the methodology applied in the Street Law sessions, how and why it works, and showcase the successful experience of the LYIT law students in the use of this method.
