Did you know that the age of criminal responsibility in Wales is ten? In Scotland it is 12. In Wales you can legally leave full-time education at sixteen, whereas in England you have to be 18. Why the differences and is this fair?
These are just some of the questions we explore in our brand new set of resources – The Law in Wales.
Aimed at KS3 and 4 the lessons cover areas such as:
- Why do we have laws?
- How the law affects their day to day life
- How laws are made and how they can be changed
- Devolution and the impact it has had on Welsh law
