Miss Herabans Kaur
Educational and Community Development Officer
I am responsible for the day-to-day management, coordination and delivery of the School's outreach and volunteering provision.
This involves facilitating the nationally funded Pathways to Law Programme, including delivery of events on and off campus.
This in turn entails developing and managing relationships with representatives from schools/colleges in Bradford, Leeds and Wakefield. I also work with representatives from international and local law firms, The Bar in Leeds and The Bar Council in London, key funders and stakeholders and core providers of events internally and externally (e.g., the CPS, the magistrates court and magistrates in the community).
I am also responsible for recruiting and training our students to work as ambassadors for the School.
Other widening participation activities include Reach 4 Excellence provision, summer schools and Access to Leeds input.
My role in the School's Pro Bono provision includes the development of new and engaging areas for our students to research and apply their legal knowledge, for example, as Director of The University of Leeds Justice Project and streetlaw.
