Our Year 11 and 12 Legal Studies students ventured out into Melbourne City on Thursday 18th Melbourne to visit the Magistrates Court and Parliament House.
At the Magistrates Court, students were excited to sit through a range of criminal hearings and experience first hand the court environment. This helped students to consolidate their knowledge of court proceedings, processes and parties in a criminal case.
At the Parliament House, students engaged in an educational and fun role play to pass their own law by taking on the roles of different people in the Parliament, including the Premier, Leader of the Opposition, Speaker, Clerk and the Serjeant-at-Arms. This was a great practical and hands on activity to help student appreciate the law making process.
