This paper presents findings from an empirical study of 174 undergraduate non-law students who studied a unit which teaches young people about legal issues which are relevant to their everyday lives using a student-led collaborative approach to curriculum design. The project explored student perceptions of learning practical, everyday legal knowledge; how their learning impacted their own everyday lives; and the impact of collaborative curriculum design and co-creation of learning content. The results are consistent with previous research, and offer further and richer insights about why students value curriculum co-creation and how students use taught knowledge in their everyday lives.
