Our A Level Law students recently visited Preston Sessions House Court to experience how law is applied in real life.

Visiting a courtroom can be a fascinating and enlightening experience, offering a glimpse into the complex and structured world of the legal system. Our Year 1 A Level Law students had the opportunity to attend a court session at Preston Session Crown Court and experience how justice is administered.

The docket for the day featured a diverse array of cases, ranging from drug cases to S.18 grievous bodily harm. The students also had a chance to speak to HHJ Judge Andrew Jefferies who has resided over important cases such as R v G and R – Recklessness, overturning of Caldwell. In addition, the students also had a chance to speak to experienced barristers such as Ms Keogh and Mr Hutchinson who were able to answer our students’ questions.

As the day concluded, our students left the courthouse with a renewed appreciation for the complexity of the legal system, the delicate balance between law and humanity and how the law is applied in real life.
