Reading Law and more

Exchange ideas, impressions and experiences with students and staff from across Hertfordshire Law School

In this co-curricular you’ll discuss and debate books, films and more, developing your confidence, strengthening your relationships and exploring fascinating new areas.

What does the course involve?

It’s about developing a collegiate learning community, where everyone feels confident sharing and debating ideas in a supportive, non-confrontational setting. Every few weeks, we will come together to consider a book, film, TV programme, article or podcast, discussing our responses to it. You’ll hear opinions from staff and students from different years and various Law School programmes.

How does it build on my degree studies?

It’s a chance to apply the analytical, case-making and public-speaking skills you learn in your degree modules to a whole range of interesting subjects. You’ll explore diverse resources you may not otherwise have been exposed to, challenge your initial responses and gain new perspectives from those around you.

What new skills will it give me?

This course is about giving you new and different opportunities to use the skills you learn within your degree studies. You’ll become more experienced in interpreting texts, taking ownership of discussions, thinking on your feet, working in a group and interacting with different personalities.

How can it help me open new doors?

The sessions will help to increase your confidence, give you valuable practice at speaking in front of a group and build your network.
