Visit to the Supreme Court
I decided to go on the Supreme Court trip because I had never been before and I knew that this trip had educational benefits as well as being a fun experience. I am glad that I went on this trip in my final year because it definitely reminded me about why I am interested in a career in law. It was a great opportunity to study the history of the legal system and take a break from my usual study-routine.
It was interesting to see the Supreme Court surrounded by other iconic sites, such as Parliament and 10 Downing Street. At the Supreme Court I was fortunate to witness Lady Arden preside over a Trusts Law case at the Supreme Court. Lady Arden is one of few female judges in the Supreme Court, and her name appears in a lot of the case law that we study on the LLB. It was interesting to see some of the arguments used by the appellants and the legal reasoning behind the judges’ rejections.
The trip was a brilliant experience because I was able to go and explore Central London with some friends during the lunch break- which is something I've never done before. We also toured "Legal London", which taught us about the history of the courts and how our court system has become what it is today. I visited places like The Old Bailey and the High Court. I thoroughly enjoyed the visit and I would definitely recommend the trip to law students.
