'Working together to bridge the gap between the law and the community.'
From cybercrime to women’s rights and discrimination, here at Leicester University our team of legal students work hard to make the law accessible to the community through the Pro Bono Street Law project.
Here, at the Street Law project, our committed volunteers use their legal knowledge and experience to work with each other to coordinate engaging, informative and understandable legal presentations. These presentations can be tailored for a large demographic of groups within the community that wish to expand their knowledge of legal topics or discuss current discrepancies in the law.
Our presentations range from Goldilocks and the three bears mock trials with the girl guides to discussing maternity pay with the Soroptimist International women’s group in Leicester.
Street Law is an excellent opportunity for students to develop public speaking skills, Legal research skills, analysis, planning and coordination skills which are the very foundation for embarking on a career within the legal profession.
If this Pro Bono Project interests you, we encourage you to apply. Applications are open until the 11th October. If you have any questions, please contact the Director of the Street Law, Gabrielle Porter at .
