Kasia Thomson represented Scotland at Telders Moot in 2016, graduated from Dundee Law School and is now studying the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice.
This semester she started up a society for Educate The Kids. It’s a society set up by a retired Scottish lady who has made a school and orphanage in Kenya and raises funds to run it, but this year 300 mothers tried to register their kids and there were only 80 places, so with no other school in the area they are fundraising to build a new one.
The society is having a pub quiz on march 7th, and it is Disney themed!
Kasia is hoping a lot of law students will want to come, and maybe even join the society and help carry it on next semester when she graduates from the DPLP! You do not have to be a student to attend.
