Law Conference

The School of Law at University of Sunderland are delighted to announce an upcoming event, exclusively for Year 12 students who are interested in studying Law at undergraduate level. “Law Conference 2023” promises to be an insightful and interactive event, giving students the opportunity to work with our fabulous team of academic staff, discussing topical and thought-provoking issues in the legal world.

Our Conference offers a unique opportunity to learn from legal experts and specialist teachers of subjects such as Criminal Law, Counter Terrorism and Legal Ethics. Our interactive workshops will challenge your thinking and deepen your understanding of the legal system.

International Law & Global Terrorism - The workshop will introduce the workings of international criminal law and the four main crimes that are widely recognised. Specifically, we will look at these crimes in the context of counter-terrorism and the global issues that surround this. You will have the opportunity to explore these contemporary issues through a series of interactive tasks.

Lost in Space - After being stranded on a barren planet, how will you save the human race? This session will explore and discuss legal systems and constitutions, human rights and difficult legal, moral and ethical dilemmas as you face tough choices on your survival and look to create a new society.

Criminal Law - This session will explore some of the recent criminal decisions, the limits of capacity for charging a defendant and relevant defences. You will explore some of the broad issues around culpability, capacity and charging using a practical charging activity. This session will cause you to ask moral, legal, practical and rights-based questions and give an insight into our teaching of Criminal Law at the University of Sunderland.

Learn about our extensive range of extra-curricular activities including field trips and mooting competitions. You’ll hear from current students and have the opportunity to quiz them about their experiences so far as a Law student.
