PRLog - Oct. 15, 2012 - A key feature is the use of current news stories to bring citizenship topics to life in the classroom. The project materials also introduce pupils to legal concepts and terms they will encounter later in life.

John Thom, the Chairman of Miller Hendry, confirmed the firm is happy to lend its support because the project not only helps pupils understand the vital role law plays in our society, but also reminds young people that laws bring responsibilities as well as rights.

Speaking on behalf of Perth Grammar School, Michael Davidson, Head of Modern Studies, said he was very grateful to Miller Hendry for making such a practical classroom resource available to the school.

The Schools Law & Citizenship Web is popular with both teachers and lawyers, and has gained the full support of the Law Society of Scotland.

The Society’s Director of Education & Training, Liz Campbell commented:
“We are delighted that Miller Hendry has nominated Perth Grammar School and feeder primaries for this imaginative programme which helps break down some of the misconceptions and stereotypes which still persist about lawyers and the work they do.”

The Director of the Schools Law Web, Patrick Gaffney, added his thanks saying:
“We can only make a difference in schools if we gain the support of the wider community.  I am extremely grateful to Miller Hendry for coming on board.

Indeed, I am pleased to say the support from law firms throughout the country has been remarkable. They are clearly keen to increase the understanding of young people.  Over 300,000 pupils have now been catered for and the legal profession deserves great credit for this.”

Perth Grammar School and its fourteen feeder primaries are also included in the nomination for the scheme which introduces pupils to the legal system and those who work within it.
