Introducing law

In groups of 4-5.

Each group is given a topic – lucky dip.

Task One: make a list of Eight Things You Never Knew about…. (defamation, contempt, privacy…). Give us some facts, but also some anecdotes, such as the size of a damages award, or a celebrity case.

Task Two: write 3/4 quiz questions for the rest of the class. They must be multiple choice, yes/no or true/false questions that do not require specific knowledge – but it’s okay to try to catch people out.

All facts and questions to be based on the law in England and Wales, not America, Scotland or Northern Ireland.

Part of the purpose is to familiarise students with the course blog and get them into the habit of using it.

Topics to include:

  • Contempt
  • Defamation
  • Privacy (can include data protection)
  • Copyright
  • Images, filming and photograpy
  • Freedom of Information
  • Anonymity
