On Wednesday 13th November, as part of the ongoing Upper 6th Academic Lecture Series, Russell Robinson, a criminal solicitor, spoke to the whole of the Upper 6th regarding his experience of practising law; for 25 years he was a duty solicitor in a police station. Through his anecdotal lecture, Mr Robinson covered a wide range of topics, from assault, to the effects of alcohol consumption and your rights whilst intoxicated. A particularly interesting aspect of the lecture was his description of assault with a weapon. He explained that any object used, whether it be thrown, hit or kicked, with the intent to harm someone, is a serious crime and can carry severe jail sentences. Mr Robinson’s lecture was full of relevant information and was thoroughly engaging for all students.
On Friday 23 February, the KEHS and KES African and Caribbean Society hosted the first King Edward’s Foundation wide Conference. We had 120 students from across 12 schools from across the KEVI Foundation attend the day.
