On 7th December 2019, the School of Law of UCLan Cyprus held its fourth Law Fair entitled ‘Become a Lawyer for a Day’. This was organised by academics of the School for the benefit of school pupils and their teachers who were invited to participate in several pre-determined activities, tailor-made for youngsters between 16 to 18 years old. These included an introduction to Criminal Law entitled ‘How to get away with murder’, a workshop on ‘When the internet can become harmful’ as well as a workshop on ‘Debating, Legal Education and Careers’. The full programme of the day can be downloaded here. The aim of all three activities was to allow participants to work, in a creative way, on understanding the meaning of some of the basic skills and subject areas in the field of law. All activities had an open question-and-answer session with members of the School. Participants were able to ask an array of questions regarding the legal profession, including over lunch which was provided to all participants. Certificates of participation were delivered to over 50 participants and their teachers.
School of Law would like to thank its academics, student volunteers as well as
the many participants to the various activities who came from all over Cyprus
to enjoy the day with us and share their enthusiasm for law studies. The School
wishes them all the best of luck in their future careers and hopes to see them
again in future Law Fair events.
