Street Law

The Clinic is extremely proud of its Community Outreach programme, Street Law, which sees our students developing their knowledge and experience by delivering a wide range of awareness-raising sessions on legal issues in local schools and community groups, and at University Open Days and ‘Law Taster’ events’ on campus. Street Law offers students the chance to enhance their academic studies and their team-working and communication skills by introducing legal issues to a wider audience through fun-filled activities including mock trials, quizzes and game shows.  Each event involves a team of 8-14 law students, who are fully trained by the Street Law committee, with support from the University’s Outreach Team. If you’re interested in attending an event, or if you’re keen to stage an activity at your school or community group, please contact Kristina Garner (Outreach Officer) by email: ssf.outreach@uea.ac.uk


The Justice Project

UEA’s Justice Project works with people who have been convicted of serious crimes but maintain their innocence, to see if there are grounds to overturn their convictions. Students can often be found in the Law Clinic sifting through evidence boxes to reassess the evidence against the prisoners and identify new lines of enquiry. The project is run in association with the charity Inside Justice, and students work directly with Louise Shorter, its Chief Executive. If you wish to know more please contact info@insidejustice.co.uk or send a postal enquiry to Inside Justice, One Business Village, West Dock Street, Kingston upon Hull, East Yorkshire, HU3 4HH. Inside Justice can be reached via telephone regarding urgent matters at 020 3961 8790
