Street Law Pilot Project Motion, 29/01/15 [S]

Motion lodged before the Scottish Parliament on 29 January 2015 by Patricia Ferguson (Lab) on Street Law Project Piloted at St Rochís Secondary School. The full text of the motion reads:

That the Parliament welcomes news of the Law Society of Scotlandís Street Law project, which has been piloted in some schools in Glasgow and West Lothian; notes that St Rochís Secondary School in the parliamentary constituency of Maryhill and Springburn is among the schools that took part; understands that the project is designed and delivered by law students and aims to educate school pupils about law through interactive and participatory teaching methods, such as mock-trials, debates and juries, to demonstrate how the law affects them in everyday life; considers that, as well as showing how the pupils can assist in shaping society around them, the course will help them develop their academic, critical thinking and communications skills, and congratulates all the schools, pupils, teachers and law students involved on what it believes has been an extremely successful pilot project.
