Law/Citizenship: Human Rights & Legal Reasoning with Anthony, a Law Undergraduate at The University of Bristol

13th December 2016 @ 11:20 - 12:20


Anthony is an undergraduate studying Law at the University of Bristol. He invites Year 9, 10 and 11 school students to this session on human rights and legal reasoning.

The event has been developed by Dr Devyani Prabhat, Lecturer in Constitutional Rights at the University of Bristol. During the hour, Anthony will present some basic concepts of human rights, including proportionality, and engage your students in activities which explore how law is used to solve practical problems.

The style of the session is mainly conversational and it is about creating awareness and stimulating interest about law and human rights and leaving your students with a few concepts to remember. Whilst this topic will directly support issues covered in school in subjects such as Citizenship Studies, PSHE or Religious Studies, it is also hoped that, for some of the students, an interest in studying law may be triggered.

Suitable for: Years 9, 10 & 11.

Preparation/Pre-reading: There is no pre-reading or preparation required for this session.

The IT Setup: The setup is similar to Skype, using a pc and webcam, although students take part as a group with the image projected on a whiteboard rather than as individuals in front of lots of pcs. Dedicated videoconferencing equipment is also compatible if available to the school. We will work with your IT department to ensure everything is set up and working prior to the event. The sessions are generally limited to 3 or 4 schools to maintain the interactive nature of the experience.

Booking a Place: If you have a group that you would like to take part in this event, please contact us via email or by using the contact form on the right of this page. We will book your place subject to availability.
