CLB support school pupils' Snooper's Law debate

Liverpool Solicitors Canter Levin & Berg have been supporting local school pupils as they consider the arguments for and against a proposed new law which would give the government powers to check up on who people phone, which websites they visit and who they send e-mails to.

The debate is taking place as part of The Schools Law & Citizenship Web, an imaginative scheme which brings teachers and lawyers together to introduce young people to the legal system and other important aspects of citizenship. The project uses current news stories to bring the topics of law and citizenship to life in the classroom.

The proposal for a new law to force telecoms companies and internet service providers to hand over details of their customers' activities is under discussion at ministerial level though no final decision has been taken. Critics of the idea have labelled it a 'Snooper's Law'.

The lessons provided by The Schools Law & Citizenship Web aim not to support any particular policy but to encourage pupils to consider the arguments for & against this and other similar matters of citizenship. All Schools Law Web materials are produced by practising classroom teachers and aim to encourage young people to grow into thoughtful, responsible, active citizens.

Liverpool Solicitors supporting law in schools

Here at Canter Levin & Berg we are proud to encourage young people to discuss such important legal issues as part of a national education programme. Our Liverpool Solicitors are very pleased to be part of such a practical project that helps our schools make young people aware of important citizenship issues as well as the way the law must adapt to changes seen in a modern society.

Anyone who wishes to view the weekly news lessons distributed to schools in our area can do so by visiting the Schools Law website.
