Royal Grammar School visit

Royal Grammar School, Buckinghamshire

On the 11th of March 2019, the Knowing Our Rights workshops continued with a visit to the Royal Grammar School in Amersham, Buckinghamshire.

Our Head of Law, Prof Dimitrios Giannoulopoulos, taught a greatly engaged group of Yr 11-13 students, about the European Convention on Human Rights and governmental threats to repeal the Human Rights Act.

Goldsmiths students taking the Human Rights Law module (with Goldsmiths’ Human Rights Clinic) in year 3 of the LLB Law programme have the opportunity to participate in the delivery of human rights workshops to schools across London.

Other activities offered to LLB Law students in this context include researching human rights jurisprudence, blogging, participation in research events and the production of short human rights videos.

Students accepted in the clinic will also have the unique opportunity to work alongside barristers or solicitors specialising in human rights adjudication. They will research relevant topics such as immigration, housing, data protection, and will advise clients, under supervision, on the human rights dimensions of their cases. Students will be introduced to general principles of clinical legal education and ethics, and related skills, such as client interviewing and legal drafting.

Moreover, students will participate in Human Rights mooting competitions such as ELSA’s annual European Court of Human Rights Mooting Competition.
