    Primary schools in London are invited to take part in a creative public legal education project- the Mayor’s Fund for London ‘Theatre of Law’.

    This project aims to improve students’ understanding of the law and the contemporary justice system and helps pupils learn more about the consequences of crime.

    Using the comprehensive Theatre of Law resources toolkit, pupils will be able to create their own mock trial in class. As an exciting end to the project, the children will then enact the trial in a real working courtroom during a visit to the Royal Courts of Justice. Schools interested in taking part in Theatre of Law workshops should contact: london@nccl.org.uk or call 0207 947 7047.

    By participating in Theatre of Law, pupils develop a variety of important life, literacy and social skills and are also encouraged to aspire to see the law and related areas as a future career possibility.

    "All of the project has been really enjoyable but the best part is definitely doing the role play in a real courtroom – it brings the project alive and makes it an unforgettable experience"
    Plumcroft Primary School
