Bangor Law student project needs YOUR vote
A student project set up and run by Bangor Law School undergraduates is vying for a major cash prize.
Street Law is participating in the NatWest Community Force scheme in which charities and projects across the UK stand to win a prize of £6,000 to help them further develop their initiatives. Street Law’s Student Directors, third year Law students Iwan Emlyn Jones and Joshua Simpson, are asking supporters to vote through the NatWest Community Force website here. To vote, you must first register here.
Street Law aims to promote legal knowledge to people in the local community who would not normally have easy access to the legal issues and information that might affect them. The project involves Bangor Law students delivering interactive presentations on topics including Criminal Law, Consumer Law and Employment Law free of charge to organizations such as Youth Clubs, the Women's Institute and Secondary Schools. Further information about Street Law can be found on their website.
Students who participate in the project gain a number of skills, such as researching, team working, public speaking and presentation skills, which are all well sought after by many employers.
The cash prize would not only secure the longevity of this project, but would also allow Street Law to expand the project throughout North Wales and to purchase essential materials in order to improve the project.
