SPITE for Schools Project
The Queen Mary Legal Advice Centre is Queen Mary’s award-winning advice agency, providing free, accessible, client centred legal advice to the public. Advice is provided by law students at the university who are supervised by qualified solicitors and barristers. The centre provides advice on a range of matters including: employment, company law, immigration, family, intellectual property, and criminal law. The Queen Mary Legal Advice Centre is also the first and only free community legal advice centre providing legal advice on revenge porn on their SPITE (Sharing and Publishing Images to Embarrass) project.
The issue of the distribution of intimate images has recently been well covered in the media. It is a very current issue for people of all ages but especially for young people who might not realise the potential implications of sharing or taking intimate photographs or videos.
Workshops for Schools
The Queen Mary Legal Advice Centre and Queen Mary Pathways to Law are offering schools the opportunity to book free workshops to educate their students on the issue of distributing intimate images and the illegality of it. These workshops are designed and delivered by Queen Mary Law students who have been specifically trained and they are supervised by a barrister.
The workshops are developed based on the needs of the group and the school, so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in booking.
