Theatre of Law project opens up the legal system

Primary schools from across London are being asked to sign up to this year’s Theatre of Law project.

The initiative is part-funded by the Mayor’s Fund for London and gives pupils an insight into the workings of the justice system.

It is delivered by the National Centre for Citizenship and the Law, which has an education team based at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.

The project aims to improve pupils’ understanding of the law and the contemporary justice system. The project consists of two days – one at school and one at the Royal Courts of Justice.

Pupils work on creative crime stories inspired by real cases, learn about the consequences of crime, write scripts to prepare for their mock trial at the Royal Courts of Justice and debate punishments.
