We are looking for creative Law students to help design legal resources for year 5s (age 9-10) for a brand new outreach project, School Tasking. 

Using the format of the hit TV show, Taskmaster, this exciting new outreach project will enable young people to learn about interesting aspects of the Law through fortnightly interactive tasks in their schools, which will be ‘judged’ by our Taskmaster and awarded points. The winning group from each school will then be invited to the School Tasking final on campus at the University of Warwick in order to compete against the other finalists in a bid to be crowned ‘School Tasking Champions’!
A team of four Law students will be recruited as Resource Creators to develop and design legal resources which will accompany the tasks to be carried out in the schools. A brief outline of each of the four tasks will be provided and you will have the freedom to design these resources as you see fit, whilst ensuring that the resources support children in learning about the area of law related to the task. For example, one task involves a role play scenario based on a fictitious court case. Here, the Creators will design resources explaining the court system, the role of each person in the court, and the area of law at stake in the case. 

You will be joining a team of students to create these resources, and you will need to work together to make sure all sections are covered.

We will also be looking for some students to help with the live School Tasking final on campus in June 2022.
Most of the schools involved in School Tasking have high numbers of students on Free School Meals and/or are under performing schools. In addition to helping primary school students to learn about Law, the project also aims to inspire these students to one day consider university. Whilst designing these sessions you will be acting as a positive role model for studying at university, as well as representing Warwick Law School.
