On Saturday, March 18, we will be combining our next open/applicant day for prospective LLB and LLM students, and our “Generation on Trial” mock trial, where we will be putting “Sir Nick Clegg” to the stand symbolically, for his role in the increase of the tuition fees by the coalition government. The mock trial brings together 24 Year 12 students as “jurors”, 8 LLB students as lawyers, 4 actors, including from our Theatre department, and other participants from outside Goldsmiths, including Sir Philip Colfox, a life-long LibDem, who will act a real life witness for the prosecution. The trial is coordinated by our Visiting Professor in Law, Clive Stafford Smith and his Generation on Trial project.
The Year 12 students participate in our Lewisham Challenge Law programme, and join us from the following schools:
Christ the King Sixth Form College (Lewisham
Haberdashers’ Hatcham Sixth Form (Lewisham)
SFH6 ( Sydenham School and Forest Hill Sixth Forms) (Lewisham)
Prendergast School Sixth Form (Lewisham)
Thomas Tallis School Sixth Form (Greenwich)
We greatly look forward to welcoming prospective students, applicants and other inquirers to our open day. All our Goldsmiths Law students, and students from across the School of Culture & Society and other Goldsmiths departments are warmly welcome to join us for the day.
