Year 12 Legal Studies excursion to Supreme and County Court Melbourne

Last week our Year 12 Legal Studies students visited the Supreme and County Courts of Melbourne.  Students got to meet with a Supreme Court Justice and a County Court Judge and had the opportunity to ask questions about their experiences of the legal profession.  Students also participated in a role play and sat in a criminal case in both the Supreme and County Courts.  Students had the opportunity to witness the Justice giving direction to the jury, examination and cross-examination of the witness and the presentation of legal argument from both the Prosecution and the Defence.
The excursion was a great experience for the students and gave them a true insight into the workings of Victoria's most senior courts.  The students were praised for their impeccable behaviour and willingness to participate in the courts educational programs.
