Introduction to Law Workshop

On Thursday 12th February 2015 our Year 9 Harris Experience cohort attended their final event of the half-term, an Introduction to Law workshop. The workshop was held at Harris Academy Morden and was run by tutors at the prestigious University of Law. As the UK’s longest –established specialist provider of legal education, it was a real honour for our students to be able to take part in a workshop specially designed to engage and challenge them at this period in their learning journey. The workshop aimed to not only introduce students to the idea of a legal career, but also wanted to develop the higher order thinking skills applicable to their studies now.
 
As has become standard at these Harris Experience events, students were afforded a quick networking opportunity before the master class started. It is always wonderful to see students developing their wider social skills and creating invaluable connections within their learning frameworks. The master class itself was excellent. Students were taken on a whistle-stop tour of what the legal profession is and how you can access it an varying point in your life. This lecture was followed up with a ‘How Commercially Aware are you?’ quiz, which one of our very own students won! Victoria Egbe is officially commercially ‘on-it’ and therefore one to watch for the future.
 
We then had a really enthralling inter-academy debate on whether Jaffa Cakes are biscuits or cakes. Now for those of you who think this is an easy win, you are very much mistaken. I was incredibly impressed as our debaters called in VAT and tax law, false advertising claims, ingredients and ‘squidge-ability’ to win the case for McVities in the face of the evil HMRC.
 
The evening was concluded nicely with a difficult thinking task that asked students to work together as a team, but also stand for their own opinions (and in this case-study in particular, sometimes their right to life). All students were superb in the debates and presentations, fully engaged throughout the lecture and were extremely supportive of their peers. We definitely left with a sense of understanding of and intrigue in the legal profession.
