Law Insights Day
|Law Insights Day at Berkhamsted School is for students who are either considering studying law at university or thinking about embarking on a legal apprenticeship.
Our year 12 students, together with students from 9 other local schools discovered the various careers falling under the umbrella of law before focusing on the training involved to become a solicitor or barrister.
Whether their ambitions included protecting human rights, providing commercial legal advice to blue chip companies or defending individuals in court students learned the next steps of their journey to a career in Law.
The day concluded with a Student-Lead Negotiation Exercise to facilitate teamwork, communication, compromise, strategical thinking and decision making, giving students a true flavour of what they will encounter in everyday legal practice, as well as the types of skills they will be expected to employ as fully fledged lawyers.
The event was delivered by an experienced lawyer/legal education professional from The Lawyer Portal.
