In partnership with The Bingham Centre, we’ve made a brand new series of videos that explores the importance of public legal education for young people, particularly as it relates to the Rule of Law.
The Bingham Centre is an independent research centre proactively advancing the Rule of Law worldwide. Their vision is of a world in which every society is governed by the Rule of Law “in the interests of good government and peace at home and in the world at large”.
A 2018 report of the UK House of Lords said that young people learning about their rights is “in a parlous state.” Many believe that public legal education in schools is lacking, and leaves many young people unaware of the extent of their rights. If more young people can be equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to be active citizens, they can feel more empowered to do so. We, along with The Bingham Centre, hope these videos can be a stepping off point for many young people to further their public legal education and learn more about their rights.
Over the course of this week, we’ll be slowly releasing the 5 videos in this series, along with accompanying articles, digging deeper into both the Rule of Law and public legal education. Check back here each day for new content!
