How will we do this?
By asking students to express their views through an interactive session, using knowledge exchange to support students in designing a visual poster, understanding their legal rights and access to justice, and presenting students with prizes for the winning designs.  
 
What's happening: 
Students will share what neurodiversity means to them by drawing posters during the event. After the event the posters will be collated into an ebooklet and shared with participants.
 
Why this matters: 
This approach helps participants to focus on essential points when discussing complex issues in neurodiversity and also raising awareness of the impact of neurodiversity on different roles within the criminal justice system.
 
Unique opportunity: 

This day offers a special chance for participants to...

  • Explore existing perspectives and knowledge around the topic of neurodiversity
  • Promote positive experiences for neurodiverse individuals in the justice system
  • Engage with experts – legal academics and policymakers – who specialise in shaping measures and informing policy
  • Put real-life issues into practice, great for students interested in Law, Criminology, Policing, Sociology and Psychology
