Solicitors help local pupils consider case for minimum alcohol pricing

Local school pupils have been considering the case for minimum alcohol pricing thanks to an education programme strongly supported by Liverpool Solicitors Canter Levin & Berg.

We are members 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 topics to life in the classroom.


The recent decision by the Scottish Parliament to set a minimum price of 50 pence per unit for alcoholic drinks, and the announcement by the UK government that it intends to adopt a similar approach for the rest of the UK, has focused attention on this issue which is of direct relevance to many young people.


Primary and secondary schools were therefore supplied with classroom worksheets which examine the case for minimum alcohol pricing in an appropriate and sensitive manner.


Like all Schools Law Web materials, the worksheets were produced by practising classroom teachers with the aim of encouraging young people to grow into responsible, active citizens.


Canter Levin & Berg 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 in a modern society.
