The Junior Lawyers Club – Debate and Public Speaking Online Workshops

The Junior Lawyers Club (JLC) is an Approved Activity Provider for the Skills section of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

In our highly interactive Zoom workshops students work with our tutor panel of lawyers and actors to develop underlying debate and public speaking skills, creative and critical thinking and soft skills such as teamwork and leadership, through a number of engaging and fun formats.

Students work in breakout rooms of up to six students per tutor, with the chance to then speak in the main room in front of larger groups and the tutor panel.

Our workshops teach the key transferable skills of a lawyer, including the ability to think and perform under pressure, to construct logical and persuasive arguments, and to understand the underlying issues behind current affairs and debates.

Workshops are  50 minute classes with 10 minutes of learning included after each session attended. Workshops can be booked during term-time and school holidays.
