The Rule of Law for Citizenship Education

The Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law runs an innovative public legal education project. We enable secondary school pupils to understand fundamental aspects of the legal system whilst encouraging them to reflect critically on how well it dispenses justice. The project provides schools with free resources including comprehensive lesson plans and background information for teachers, ensuring that the lessons are accessible for any level of Citizenship expertise.

This year we will also provide topical updates on rule of law issues, our Bingham Briefings, so teachers taking part in our programme can discuss the most topical issues with their students. These case studies are supplied by practising solicitors and barristers.

The lessons enable teachers to meet the criteria for KS3 and 4 Citizenship teaching as well as other Department for Education strategies such as fundamental British values, and Spiritual, Moral, Social & Cultural development.

We are thankful for the support that the project has received from the Legal Education Foundation, Lexis Nexis, the Magna Carta Trust, Travers Smith LLP and Mishcon de Reya LLP.
