An SCL outreach initiative aimed at helping underprivileged 6th form students consider a career in the tech law sector
The SCL AI for Schools Programme is an outreach initiative aimed at helping underprivileged 6th form students, who may never have heard of tech law, consider a career in the sector.
It has been conceived by SCL Trustee Matthew Lavy, Barrister, 4 Pump Court and Iain Munro, Barrister, 4 Pump Court.
AI is the topic focus because of the opportunities for interesting and relatable use cases. The chosen scenarios make it easy to show students why the law of AI matters and the profound effect AI could have upon their lives.
Matthew and Iain have run several sessions with 6th formers, most recently with the Sutton Trust at Warwick University. They have evaluated what works and what doesn’t and refined the programme content accordingly. We are now ready to roll out this initiative more widely.
We are therefore looking for SCL members who are interested in presenting this training in schools and colleges. Potential presenters could be SCL student ambassadors to senior partners or barristers. We are keen to attract as diverse an audience as possible and are looking for confident and competent presenters to help us take this initiative forwards. If you already have a relationship with a school in a disadvantaged area, even better.
We have all the materials to help you deliver the programme to students: scenario slides, notes and suggested questions and a training video.
