Lawyers in Schools is a unique skills-based employee volunteering opportunity designed to increase young people’s awareness and understanding of the law. The flexible programme links law firms, in-house legal teams and chambers with local secondary schools, predominantly in economically deprived areas. It provides opportunities for practising and trainee lawyers to engage students in interactive discussions about various legal issues relevant to their daily lives.
