Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander school students explore legal life

25 Sep 2018

Seventeen Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from high schools across Queensland and interstate will get a hands-on experience of life as a law student this week as part of The University of Queensland’s InspireU Law residential camp.

The students will take part in a number of activities including a mock trial in the University’s moot court, field trips to the Supreme Court Library, a visit to the law firm Corrs Chambers Westgarth, as well as observing court proceedings at the law courts.

Day 1: Indigenous Games and interactive team building

Students’ understanding of law will also be supported through opportunities to engage with current students, lecturers and legal experts.

The camp runs from Sunday 23 September to Friday 28 September and is one of six InspireU residential camps held at UQ each year themed around the professional disciplines of engineering, science, law, business and health sciences.
