Street Law Project Goes Out Into the Community

Following their successful presentation on cyber-bullying to pupils at Leeds Grammar School, students from the Street Law Project at the University of Huddersfield were recently invited out to Oldham Sixth Form College by teacher Jasmin Nessa.

Street law is all about delivering community programs to inform and educate people about their rights under the law and how it can be used to improve lives. The accessible, engaging and interactive events effect positive changes across communities allowing them to become active contributors to society.

After the performance on cyber-bullying, the students went to give a presentation on how the pupils at Oldham College could set up their own Street Law Project and make a difference in their area. This included explaining the way the University’s Project was ran as well as some handy hints and tips to bear in mind for the future.

Jasmin later reported back that: “My students said that they had learnt a lot from the presentation your students gave. The Huddersfield Street Law team were absolutely amazing and really motivated our students - not only to do Street Law well but also to achieve in their academic lives!”
