Legal Studies Excursion

May 22, 2018 at 8:51 am

On Monday the 14 May, members of the Year 11 and 12 Legal Studies class attended the Rockhampton Magistrates Court. The day provided insight into legal proceedings and formalities, including the viewing of live cases. In the magistrate’s court, students witnessed several cases including DUIs, thefts, DVOs and drug offences.

After an extended session viewing trials, we proceeded to the Dispute Resolution Centre, where students investigated the benefits of settling civil matters without initiating legal action. From there, we engaged in a tour of the old supreme court and library facilities.

Overall it was a fantastic experience, providing real world perspective to the legal system.
