The School:

St Elizabeth’s are in their first year working with Enabling Enterprise and are looking forward to starting their Enterprise projects and Challenge Day back at school in the coming months. Today’s trip was a fantastic opportunity for students from Year 6 to put their Sharing Ideas and Problem Solving skills to the test with the support from professional business volunteers.

The Business:

Dentons is a multinational law firm and the world’s largest law firm by number of lawyers. Dentons have consistently been recognized by the business and legal communities for exceptional client service and as leaders in law and business solutions, working across the world.

The Challenge: Tour the Law

The day started off with the students interviewing the volunteers to find out about their different roles, responsibilities and the Enterprise Skills required to do their jobs. Students then went on a tour of the premises, which allowed the teams to see the great variety of jobs available in the world of law.
Taking on the role of lawyers, students explored two different areas of law, Criminal and Business, through separate cases designed to put their Problem Solving skills to the test. The first case saw them review police evidence and then play the part of a defence lawyer to build a case for their client. In the second task, the teams of students act as mediators in a business merger, finding different possible solutions and considering the pros and cons of each.
Sharing Ideas skills were put to the test as new challenges arose, and also at the end of the day when each team presented their findings to a panel of professional judges.

What they said:

  • “A life changing day. The children are now fearless presenters and comfortable in what could otherwise be a slightly intimidating environment and scenario” – Teacher
  • “It has been great to see the kids being able to make the link between school work and the real world of work.” – Volunteer
  • “3 words to sum up today; fun, entertaining and inspiring, oh and educational too.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great trip day!
