Law Summer School Placements




For the third year running, we have offered DG (Year 12) students the opportunity to apply for a law summer school placement with Debate Chamber, fully funded by the school’s own Daniel Lett Fund. Congratulations to this year’s successful candidates, Esther, Anthony, Daniel, Sebastian, Sienna, Ashlyne, Hiqmat and Maria.

The Law Summer School includes introductions to key areas of the law, seminars on some tricky and controversial legal questions, lively debates, and advocacy practice exercises. Participants have the opportunity to discuss legal issues in depth with expert tutors, work on problem questions together with enthusiastic and motivated peers and learn about what it’s really like to study law at university.

The course is designed to sharpen students’ problem-solving skills, hone their ability to identify weaknesses in an argument or body of evidence and give them the confidence to advocate for their position (in court or anywhere else), through simulated client conferences, business negotiations and mock trials.
