Law and Policy Clinics launch for spring term (as part of ‘Beyond the Classroom’)

This week we are launching two Law and Policy Clinics in Counter Terrorism and Human Rights and Immigration. Over 60 students from Law and other departments in the School of Culture and Society have signed up to them.

Our Counter Terrorism and Human Rights Clinic is led by the legendary Clive Stafford Smith and will look at key themes in the setting of real life cases and the opportunity to get practical experience in the issues surrounding human rights and the ‘War on Terror’.

The Immigration Law Clinic is led by our wonderful Marta Minetti and will explore key current immigration themes, seeking to situate them within the government’s overarching “hostile environment” approach.

The clinics take place in the Spring Term via five two hour in-person sessions, and independent small group and individual student, Clinic-supervised, work.

Clinics are part of the ‘Beyond the Classroom’ initiative developed by Prof Dimitrios Giannoulopoulos, Associate Head of School, and supported by the Head of School, Prof Adam Dinham.

The initiative brings students from different parts of the School of Culture & Society together, exposing them to unique experiential learning opportunities and study trips, to enhance cross-disciplinary skills, strengthen student community and expand the students’ career horizons.
