Year 12 Legal Studies

Excursion to Ringwood Magistrates’ Court - Student Reflection

The Unit 3/4 Legal Studies excursion to the Ringwood Magistrates’ Court was extremely interesting and helpful to see what we have been learning placed into a real life scenario. Whilst many people wouldn’t necessarily find a court to be the most exciting place, we as legal students found it fascinating to see all different legal processes come together to serve justice in our community. Seeing the advantages and disadvantages of whether or not an accused has legal representation or not was insightful and showed the daily struggle of those who are unable to afford legal representation.
