We deliver a range of free and interactive presentations around Hertfordshire.
Streetlaw is a legal education project aimed at improving access to justice by demystifying areas of law that affect the wider community. Streetlaw students work in teams to prepare and deliver interactive presentations to school children and community groups about their legal rights and responsibilities.
Streetlaw presentations can take place in a number of settings including primary and secondary schools, prisons, homeless shelters and charities who help victims of domestic violence. The topics can vary enormously and can include police powers, knife crime and family law issues. Our Streetlaw students work closely with schools and community groups to prepare presentations tailored to their audience.
Herts Streetlaw students recently prepared and delivered a presentation for Islington Refugee Forum at Islington Town Hall as part of Refugee Week.
We encourage our audience members to participate and think critically, through activities such as role plays, group discussion and quizzes. The format allows for audience members to develop their own opinions in a respectful and controlled environment.
The sessions are delivered by trained University of Hertfordshire students, under the supervision of qualified lawyers from Hertfordshire Law Clinic.
