Lower Sixth students investigate Legal Careers
Last week, Head of Careers, Mrs Williams accompanied a group of Lower Sixth students to Worcester Crown Court. The trip offered students a valuable opportunity to see the Crown Courts in action and experience the legal processes that are part of everyday life for those practising law whilst providing an insight into a career in the legal profession.
After observing trials from the public gallery, students had the opportunity to talk to a judge after the trials.
A Lower Sixth student commented: “Not only were we able to experience real-life trials from the public gallery but we were able to talk to a judge afterwards, allowing us to formulate some questions to understand the processes further.
This then became extremely useful when we got back to school and discussed with a visiting barrister the deeper meanings of terminology used. We also heard from a University Law Student about the process of applying and studying Law, giving us an insight to what a Law degree may look like for us. This was an amazing opportunity for students as it gave an opportunity to understand the outcome of Legal training.”
