Workshops and Talks for Schools and Colleges

Workshops and Talks Offered for schools and colleges

A number of schools and colleges are provided with details of the annual workshop held in the Department of Law & Criminology, and we are always happy to hear from other institutions who wish to be added to the mailing list. Similarly the Department is pleased to accommodate requests, where possible, for members of staff to visit schools and colleges to give talks and hold workshops.

Law Workshops

Our 'workshops' are designed for those who may be considering studying law but know little of what the subject involves. They allow students to work on a project concerning a topical aspect of law. Recent workshops have covered topics such as 'Provocation and Murder' and 'The Right to Protest'. Students are shown how to use legal materials and also discuss their findings amongst themselves and with members of staff.

Criminology Workshops

The criminology workshops will introduce students to the core areas of the subject and aim to give them a broad understanding of the field. As a discipline, criminology is often misunderstood, with people often confusing what they have seen on television with real life. The workshops will enable students to visit some of the key areas in criminological research and how these shape and influence policy and practice. Alongside the theoretical aspects, there will be a range of exercises to allow students to participate and partake in objective and critical thinking about crime and criminality and the best ways of dealing with these behaviours. There will also be an opportunity to discuss the more practical aspects of studying criminology and the careers that such a degree can equip you to do in the future.
