It was second time lucky on Tuesday 20th March, as we finally were able to go on a law trip to London, after last year’s was cancelled. There were 6 students from Knockloughrim Campus and three students from Newry Campus, who travelled over, and met up with 16 other law students from across the UK. We first of all visited, the Supreme Court and were shown inside the court rooms and we were able to listen in on a case that was being heard that day. Our guide told us about previous cases that had come up within the past year, including the case about Jaffa Cakes, and whether they had to decide whether they were classed as a biscuit or a cake! Next, we had a lunch break, which involved a visit to the London Eye 4D experience. Then, we took a short train journey on the Underground, to be given a tour of Middle Temple, which is one of four Inns of Court, where all qualified barristers work in. Afterwards, we went to the Royal Courts of Justice, which is where the High Courts are located. First of all we viewed several of the cases that were proceeding, (of which some made for very interesting viewing), before being given a guided tour of the building. Thanks very much to Scott and Adele McCormack, and Mr Sweeney for accompanying us on this trip.
