Year 12 Society and Community Studies students visit Brisbane Courts

Thursday 05 Jul 2018 by Senior School
On Monday 4 June, Year 12 Society and Community Studies students visited the Brisbane Supreme and District Courts.
Students participated in a mock court trial in Court 34 and discovered the various seating positions of the Judge and court officers, legal teams, witness, defendant and public gallery. They also considered the case, using active court technology, of mistaken identity in an alleged Mars Bar theft.

Students later attended live court proceedings in a number of cases, selected from the court lists, and observed presentations by prosecution and defence councils, then the sentencing of defendants by the Judge hearing the cases.
