Bolt Burdon enriches and inspires local school children
A group of 15 year six pupils from Thornhill School have just completed a five week enrichment programme at Bolt Burdon. The children spent five consecutive Friday afternoons at the leading Islington law firm’s unique offices on Upper Street.
The pupils were treated to a wide-ranging experience designed to give them a flavour of working for a successful law firm, and a more general introduction to the world of work.
The pupils not only quizzed some of the firm’s 60 staff, but also prepared for and took part in a mock trial, gaining a better understanding on how the law impacts upon everyday life. They worked with Bolt Burdon’s Marketing Manager to create posters to promote their school, which prides itself on giving children a love for learning that will last a lifetime.
Helen Beach, Partner at Bolt Burdon, said:
” This was the second year we have run the programme and helping one of our local schools in this way is very rewarding, both for our staff and we hope the children”.
