The School:

Old Moat Primary School is in their second year working with Enabling Enterprise. Back in school, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by exploring the world of transport design in their recent ‘Future Transport‘ Challenge Day. 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:

Eversheds Sutherland is a British multinational law firm head-quartered in London. It is one of the world’s largest corporate law firms, with over 40 offices based in the world’s major economic centres. They employ just under 3,000 people, which includes around 1,220 lawyers. Today’s venue was the impressive, canal-side offices in Manchester.

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 Law 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 acted 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.
