How would you rewrite the laws in your country so that they would be fairer? Flat Time House presents for the first time in London a project by Danish artist Stine Marie Jacobsen. Law Shifters engages young citizens in law and democracy by giving them the chance to re-judge real court cases and write new law proposals.
Join this workshop for teenagers led by artist Stine Marie Jacobsen and experienced lawyer Sarah Andrew to apply this methodology to UK criminal law, the stop and search law (Sus Law) and racial profiling.
