Courtroom Workshops: Nottingham, London, North West

Education Visits to Courts

These two hour courtroom workshops, available in Nottingham, London and the North West, bring the law to life through hands-on, authentic and unforgettable learning experiences. Students will learn about the law and justice system and explore civil or criminal cases in a real courtroom. They will create, prepare and present a trial, taking on roles such as the judge, jury, barristers, witnesses and defendant. Groups will collaborate to reach an outcome or verdict and debate the best sentencing options.

There a range of themes to choose from to suit the needs and interests of your group. Courtroom workshops are suitable for primary pupils through to college and university levels and are also great for home education, SEN and adult education groups.

Key skills enhanced include problem-solving, critical thinking and analysis, public speaking and debating.

Wherever possible we engage law students and legal professionals with our courtroom sessions. Legal professionals share their passion for law, lead Q&As and help to raise aspirations.

Costs vary depending on location and range from £7.50 – £8.50 for students in full time education. A £75.00 deposit is required to secure a booking. Please note, minimum group sizes are 20 students. If you wish to bring fewer than 20 students we, in most cases, will still need to invoice for 20 to cover the costs of delivering the session.

You can also combine a courtroom workshop with another activity. See our full education programme package here.
