Event Details

The aim of session is to make students aware of how disputes are dealt with in courts and to gain a perspective on how the legal process operates in practice. Dress and spatial organisation play an important role in setting the scene for the context in which legal hearings take place before an audience as they have a performative aspect.

After the court visit students will be given an opportunity to discuss the court set up and the kind of impact that it has on how participants may respond to the hearing.  They will then be given some scenarios and asked to take on roles as judge, pursuer, defender etc to get a feeling for what these different roles embrace. There will then be a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of the way in which the current system operates.

This event will be led by Prof Anne GriffithsStudents should meet at the Sheriff Court at 9.30am.  The afternoon session will run from 2.00 - 4.00 pm in Room L04 and students must attend both parts.

*THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO ALL LAW STUDENTS. 16 PLACES AVAILABLE.*
