WORKSHOP EVERY WEDNESDAY 1PM AT HU2.86
Street Law is a student led organisation that has been running at DMU for nearly 16 years!!
Streetlaw is a fantastic initiative which gives students the opportunity to contribute to life at DMU. We are a society passionate about law and developing our skills to help others.
Meeting like-minded students - Through our weekly workshops, socials and projects, you'll be able to meet like-minded and driven friends. Having people around you who are hard-working will motivate you to go beyond your potential.
Fundraising - Streetlaw maintains close links with Action Homeless - a charity that has an incredible impact on the streets of Leicester - so we aim to raise money for them throughout the year. Often this is through bake sales, but we're open to new ideas!
Developing skills and character - Street Law is a great way for you to build on the legal knowledge that you will gain during your degree. It equips you with skills that are invaluable for your later career. You will gain confidence in giving presentations and being a group member working towards a common goal.
Weekly workshops - Our workshops are held in Hugh Aston where we will discuss new topics of law. We will then use the knowledge and deliver it to other people through projects. Last year, we hosted the Law Club (a Leicestershire club for 6th Formers interested in law) and taught our guests about criminal and contract law. Our workshops will also develop your commercial awareness and teach you why it's important and how to use it.
SO... Street Law can help improve your skills in presentations, research and communication. It can help you to build in confidence inside and outside of university life. We are a welcoming and friendly Society who carry out presentations within the community and provide plenty of exciting volunteering opportunities - you even get a certificate at the end of the year! And you don't even have to know a thing about the law - we do all the research ourselves!! So come and join us to see for yourselves; we hope to see you there. We will have a table at the Freshers Fair so pop along to see us to find out more :)
