Budding crime-solver Dalen K (Yr 7) really enjoyed taking part in a 3 Day Investin Future Lawyer Programme, where he had the opportunity to hear from solicitors and barristers on what is involved in being a lawyer.
Dalen’s interest in Law comes from his love of reading Sherlock Holmes stories, solving riddles and playing chess. In Year 5 Dalen wrote a story called ‘Sherlock Cones and the Daring Plot’ for a Young Writer’s competition, which was published in ‘The Incredible Diary of Essex Stories’.
The course was one of many shared to our Felstedians as part of their academic learning programme, where they are encouraged to take part in extra-curricular activities in areas of their interest. As part of the course Dalen was supported by friendly experts as he completed different tasks, finding out more about the different aspects to the job. The course has increased his ambition to become a Lawyer one day.
