Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course

Description

The aim of this workshop, which will be the first of its kind on this scale, is to bring together educators, researchers and practitioners from across the UK and Ireland to consider how the legal community can rise to the challenge of reaching out to students from non-traditional backgrounds, dispel outdated perceptions of elitism and exclusion, and make the law more attractive to those who are the ‘most able but least likely’ to study and work in this field. The workshop will be funded by an award from the SLS Small Projects and Events Fund.
