A taste of University Life for Lawyers
Year 12 students of A-Level Law enjoyed a trip to the Law School at the University of Hertfordshire.
On 5th December 2022, Year 12 students of A-Level Law visited the University of Hertfordshire to participate in sessions relating to higher education. They heard from current students about studying at university, in particular what it would be like to study law and criminology. Students from the University ‘Street Law’ group ran an informative session about police powers of stop and search. Then the students enjoyed a sample lecture on murder.
A highlight of the trip was a mock sentencing hearing in the University’s replica Crown Court, in which a student was placed in the dock (temporarily!). An ex-student at BHGS, Julide H, who is now studying Law at the University (here pictured in her wig and gown), played the part of the prosecuting barrister. It was inspiring to see how Julide’s experience in advocacy at the University has enabled her to play the part of a confident legal professional. The trip ended with an interesting campus tour, giving an early insight into what life would be like at University.
