Young Lawyers is a series of two workshops designed to inspire Year 6 students to consider a career as a lawyer by broadening their understanding of what a lawyer is and the essential skills they are required to use. The lessons and additional resources are designed to be downloaded and led by a teacher as an off-timetable careers session, or as an after-school club. The sessions are roughly one hour each and contain the opportunity for students to apply the essential skills of Speaking, Listening, Problem Solving and Teamwork.

The lessons are designed to achieve Skills Builder Impact Level 3: Practising essential skills. At the start of each session, students reflect on some step-specific questions, followed by watching a video which explicitly teaches the focus skill steps for that session.

The essential skills are referred to consistently throughout the resources, with a consistent definition shared at the beginning of each session.

At the end of each session, once students have applied the focus skill steps that they have learnt about in an activity, students have the opportunity to reflect on their application of the focus skill steps in that session, and to peer-assess someone they have been working with.

If you are interested in running these sessions with a group of students, please contact Emma via this email address: Emma.Lim@simmons-simmons.com , and the PowerPoint sessions will be sent to you, along with some facilitator guidance and supporting worksheets.
