Recently our Law students had the exclusive opportunity to work with Teesside University Law Clinic, where they participated in interviewing workshops. These immersive workshops took place over 3 sessions; in the first one Teesside University Law students attended QE and taught our students the valuable skills needed to effectively interview clients. Students created their own plans to enable them to conduct an interview with a ‘client’. Over the next two sessions our students attended Teesside University Law Clinic where they commenced their interviews, putting their newly developed skills into practice.

Law teacher Ellie White says ‘I am always so proud of our students for engaging in this opportunity. It can be really daunting and, especially for our first year students, they often do not know their partners before the sessions. Our students undertake fantastic preparation, and take the activity seriously.’
