Our partner, Bath Spa University – Bath Business School and Law course team, invite you to their Law in the Community event.
The event will highlight the unmet legal needs of marginalised sections of communities and barriers that hinder access to justice. You’ll hear from organisations operating in the voluntary and not-for-profit sectors. You’ll also learn about the role they play in supporting and advocating for specific groups and individuals.
The event aims to offers insight into the diversity of advocacy and legal needs that exist. It will also explain the continued importance of civic engagement and community participation.
Line up for the Law in the Community event:
Chaired by Dr Jeffrey Wale, course leader for the university’s LLM provision, the panel includes representatives from:
- Advocate (a national charity of the Bar)
- Citizens Advice Bath & North East Somerset (BANES)
- GlobalARRK (a charity supporting stuck parents)
You’ll get to meet panellists, Bath Spa University students and fellow guests over a glass of wine. There’ll be time to mingle before and after the discussions, subject to any COVID-19 restrictions.
The Bath Law Clinic
We’ll also discuss the new Bath Law Clinic. It’s a collaboration between Bath Spa University, Citizens Advice (BANES) and Stone King LLP. Through it, law students will undertake experiential and practice-led activities within the community. Students will learn through experience and practical engagement in real-world legal activities. The project will support individuals often ill-served by the justice frameworks in this country.
Please note: The capacity of the event venue has been capped to allow for 1m social distancing and you are asked to maintain this when networking with each other. We encourage all visitors to Newton Park Campus to wear masks.
