Year 11 Legal Studies – Downing Centre Courts

On Friday, 24 March, two Year 11 Legal classes went to the Downing Centre in Sydney. At the Downing Centre, we were able to attend Local and District courts , where we heard cases. We had the opportunity to watch the law in action and connect our classwork to real cases. The court rooms were quite intimidating and having to bow to the judge/magistrate was a new experience that we all found quite odd. Overall, this was an amazing day for everyone as we learnt valuable information that will assist us in our further Legal Studies. We had an incredible experience that we will never forget. Special thanks to Ms Matthews and Ms Grimm for giving us the opportunity to expand our knowledge about the legal system.
