Students from Wanganui Park SC get an Introduction to the Legal Profession.

Tuesday 21 October saw 40 Y8-10 students from Wanganui Park SC have the opportunity to work with Scott Murray from the LEAP into…Law team and Victoria University by participating in our Introduction to the Legal Profession activity. 

Upon arrival Scott immediately engaged the students with the ‘Judge or Actor’ warm up activity, then focussed in on a scenario about an accident, challenging the students to work in teams to determine what had happened to cause the accident.

Following this first activity the students then examined types of crime and their various differences, followed by a set of slides and re-creation of a crime.

This was the first time these students had participated in a LEAP event and they certainly got actively involved in the session. Their teachers indicated that they thought the students had gained a lot from the event.

Thanks go to Scott Murray from the LEAP into...Law team and Victoria University for organising this great event.

LEAP into… Law activities aim to encourage students to consider a career in the legal profession. View all Law Activities available to your school.
