Students don their wigs and gowns for a glimpse into the future

Law students at Trafford College donned their wigs and gowns recently for a special visit to Manchester Crown Court.

The aspiring legal brains were given the opportunity to get a glimpse of where their future careers could take them as they were given full access to a real courtroom where they took part in a role-play workshop. Students were given a special brief to play out their own court case and see the law in action.

Law students get their day in court

Students on the Subsidiary Diploma in Law and those on the Diploma in Business with a Law Pathway attended the special event and relished the opportunity to support their academic learning by experiencing law in a practical setting.

It’s been a busy few weeks for the students who have welcomed guest speakers to their classroom including a very special visit from Baroness Walmsley, who spoke with the students about her experiences in the House of Lords. Students were also excited to meet some of the region’s top solicitors and barristers who visited the College to chat with the students about their career options.

All the students found the experience to be very enjoyable, with many commenting that their visit had motivated them to succeed in their course more than ever.

Rikkie Davenport, Diploma in Business with Law Pathway student commented “I really enjoyed the role-play of the case and got an invaluable feel for what went on in the courts.”

Fellow student Sophie-Victoria Harvey, added, “It was very interesting. I learnt a lot more in-depth information about what goes on in the courtroom.”
