LEX in London: Trip to the Supreme Court

NTU's LEX Law Society enjoyed a day of court room drama at the Supreme Court on their recent London trip.

On Wednesday 24 February 2016 the LEX Law Society attended their annual London trip to Parliament Square, Westminster, to tour the Supreme Court. 

The trip's exciting itinerary included observing an appeal hearing in which seven Supreme Court Justices were reviewing the immigration rules in a case involving a potential breach of Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights. After touring the court rooms and viewing the Supreme Court exhibition, LEX ventured to the Old Bailey where they observed an examination-in-chief and cross-examination of a witness in a robbery trial.

"Both the Supreme Court and the Old Bailey are places of huge relevance to any law student. The exhibition in the Supreme Court provided LEX with a detailed background of UK legal history. We witnessed great advocacy both in the Supreme Court and the Old Bailey, which should come in useful for our mooting assessments! The trip hugely complemented our studies as we saw how the law operates in practice." Alishia Dennehy, Vice-President LEX Society.

The London Supreme Court trip is an annual event exclusive to LEX members, the cost of which is subsidised by society funds. After the success of this year's London trip, run by Alice Radford, the tradition is certain to continue next year.
