SCL University Ambassadors

An SCL initiative to promote a greater focus on IT Law, especially at undergraduate level

SCL believes that the awareness of IT law as a speciality ought to be raised within our universities and we would like to recruit as many SCL University Ambassadors as possible from within our membership.

Central to our existence is the aim of fostering the understanding of IT law and the universities ought to be giving the next generation of lawyers an awareness of IT law as a legal speciality. Of course, the SCL University Ambassadors initiative has a double purpose; it will contribute both to the increased awareness of IT law at our universities and it will increase the awareness of SCL among students and help the SCL to forge closer links with the universities.

We are keen to hear from SCL members who would like to take on the role of SCL University Ambassadors, particularly anyone who already has a relationship with a local university (guest lecturer etc) and who would be prepared to 'spread the SCL word'. Details of the resources that SCL provides to students free of charge appear below.
