It was a day for hard work yesterday, as our programmes are coming towards their ends in Cambridge, there were final presentations, assignments and even a legal case to solve! The heat was intense as we look forward to the hottest day on record in the UK on Thursday!
Students were eager to head off to classes in the morning and everyone was prompt to take their seats and begin the day. In a Photography and Sketching class, the group were making prints of the photographs they had taken of the Backs. This was an intricate process and their teacher was an expert at guiding them through the delicate process – with great results produced at the end!
In Leadership and Teambuilding classes, students were tasked with making towers out of paper in a short amount of time. Introduction to Law was by far the most exciting place to be in the afternoon as students were treated to a mock trial in the marquee – an opportunity for them to try their hand at a real style case.
Firstly, they offered their verdict on a Contract Law case which was concerned with the topical issue of mental health. Millie Frylish was a young performer, who due to mental health issues, broke her contract with a small but famous London nightclub. The jury were not so sympathetic as they decided that she had to pay £300,000 in reparations.
The Legal case was centred around a left-wing student who was found to have bomb making materials in her university halls. This was a difficult one to argue for the defence but regardless of the verdict everyone engrossed themselves in both cases and made persuasive arguments. Well done to all of our students for showing such dedication to their programmes!
