Schools Engagement

“I want to send the message to all students, from whatever background, that they could be the judges of the future.”

Lord Burnett, the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales

The Schools Engagement Programme is an initiative which aims to provide primary and secondary school students with a greater understanding of the judiciary’s work. This involves interactive judge visits to schools, exciting ‘Question Time’ events, the facilitation of learning materials, and more. Equipped with knowledge about the justice system, it is important that pupils from all walks of life feel a sense of empowerment to speak on fundamental constitutional principles and, should they wish, pursue a career in the law.
