Auckland lawyers appeal pupils’ homework

Litigation, affidavits and depositions are not what you would typically find in the classroom.

But that hasn’t stopped clued-up lawyers trading the courtroom for some impromptu lessons in maths, science or English.

And the pupils of Wesley Primary School are soaking up this new wealth of knowledge.

Every Wednesday staff from law firm MinterEllisonRuddWatts head along to the school to share their expertise in the Homework Help Club.

Partner Stacey Shortall began the project in Wellington to connect staff with the community; it’s ongoing success has since seen it expand.

Construction and property lawyer Janine Stewart has taken up the baton for Auckland.
