Law and sexual equality

An analysis of how the law helps to shape the social attitudes to sexual equality; looking at the nature of equality and focusing on aspects of bias, prejudice and discrimination. How have social attitudes to gender and sexuality been reflected in recent legislative changes, such as the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013? The session will include a Q&A on how those factors shape legal/social attitudes, followed by a plenary - has the law got it right?

Duration: 90 minutes (minimum)
Maximum number of students: 30


Analysis of crime and law

An investigation as to the nature of criminal behaviour - what are crimes, and why are they regulated by law? How can we identify criminal behaviour, and how do lawyers separate law and morals in order to discern those behaviours that are illegal? The workshop will also discuss the legal meaning of 'harm', and the moral/legal obligations to protect against causing harm to others.

Duration: 90 minutes (minimum)
Maximum number of students: 30


Fact analysis and law

An investigation as to the nature of facts - what are they and why are they important? How can we identify facts, and how do lawyers separate varying facts in order to discern those that are 'material'? Why do lawyers see facts (and the obvious) differently from others?

Duration: 90 minutes (minimum)
Maximum number of students: 30
