Street Law is a fantastic way of meeting like-minded students, socialising and taking part in some great events in your spare time. We hold social and fundraising events such as cake sales throughout the year and in 2012 we held a club night at the DMU Student's Union to raise money for Help For Heroes.
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.
We hold weekly workshops in the Hugh Aston building (room tbc at a later date) where we host a variety of different activites from debating to having guest speakers; from topical quizzes to accessing legal knowledge for our presentations . We also give regular presentations around the community on legal topics as well as regular events.
Plans for the upcoming year include a bar crawl with the Law Society on the 2nd October ; workshops on the subject of euthanasia; guest speakers and mock trials. We also do a newsletter where you can view our previous and upcoming activities, the most recent of which you can access through this website under the 'News' tab.
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 :)
