The Law School created a student focused and student led twitter account with the aim of enhancing student communication. We launched the account with a series of Twitter Takeovers involving students undertaking interested projects or activities tweeting in a personal capacity for 48 hour on the account.
So far there have been 3 Takeovers from projects based on Diversity in the Legal Profession, Transnational Land Law and also from a StreetLaw Conference. Each student has bought a unique voice to the project and helped further develop it.
The Law School is looking to develop this approach with similar Facebook Live takeovers in the next year.
Increase in twitter activity: Followers, replies & retweets
Develop the student voice in exciting and innovative ways
Build a strong online community of students
Create a sustainable student led social media strategy
