LAW students at The Sixth Form College have had a glimpse into the inner-workings of the country’s most powerful courts.
The first-year A-Level students travelled to London to visit the Royal Courts of Justice, which houses the High Court and the Court of Appeal, and the Supreme Court.
Some students watched a defamation case, while others were lucky enough to observe the challenge to the government’s right to start article 50 Brexit negotiations without Parliament’s authority.
At the Supreme Court, the highest UK court, the students enjoyed a tour of the building and observed an appeal case in action.
Law teacher and Assistant Curriculum Leader Elaine Gerard said: “A level Law students study the criminal courts in England and Wales and the visit is an ideal opportunity for them to see the courts in action.
“For those thinking about a career in the legal profession this is also a taste of what they could do in the future.”
