Miss Shaw reports,

Both mornings began with an informative talk from a court usher where students sat within a courtroom and were given an introduction to court proceedings and a list of cases for the day. They then independently entered different courtrooms and sat in the public gallery of several cases ranging from murder trials to robbery and even a slightly unusual criminal damage case involving the poisoning of a tree!

Students observed trials, sentencing, pleas and pre-trial preparations and gained a great insight into the different roles within a Crown court. A very well done to all criminology students who attended; they demonstrated excellent conduct throughout and made the days very enjoyable.
