Description

'Lessons in Law: Who's Liable? You Decide!' - Thursday 11th January 2018, 6:30pm - 7:30pm

About the Lecture:
This lecture will explain the differences between several types of law, including criminal law, civil law and tort law. Once you have the basics, you will then be given the exciting opportunity to take on the role of the Judge as various well-known characters bring their cases before the audience! Families of all ages are welcome, but it may be of particular interest to 11 - 18 year olds who are interested in studying Law at university.

Doors open at 6:00pm in preparation for an expected start time of 6:30pm. The lecture should finish by 7:30pm but families are welcome to stay afterwards to speak to event organisers and current University of Surrey students.

Entry is completely free of charge and refreshments will also be provided for free.
