Parkside students learn about the many arms of the law

The students from Leeds University talked to year nine and 10 students at the Cullingworth school as part of Aspire2B programme.

The undergraduates outlined why they had chosen to study Law and what GCSEs and A-levels they had gained.

They spoke about the many different career choices students could make after studying Law, from solicitors to teachers, data analysts and mediators.

The Leeds students made it clear that there were different routes into studying Law including apprenticeships, Russell Group universities that usually ask for three A-grade A-levels, and non-Russell Group universities that might give unconditional offers.

Assistant headteacher Jo Sykes said: “The university students delivered a workshop on Rogue Landlords and all of the legal implications and laws involved.

“Not only did this provide our students with an insight in to the laws around housing but it also gave them a glimpse into their future if they choose to move away from home and live in student accommodation."
