Workshop for Law Students with Lay Magistrates

Tuesday 11 May 2021

On Monday 10 May, Applied Law Level 3 students had the great opportunity to hear from two lay magistrates about real life experience in the field.

The workshop centred around the role of lay magistrates in criminal cases and students learned about the different types of cases that they deal with. In addition, they got to know what other parts of the role as well, such as determining the verdict and deciding on a sentence.

Razur Rahman, Law teacher at RuTC, said, "The workshop with the two lay magistrates was really helpful for the Applied Law Level 3 students. One of the course units looks at the roles of legal personnel and the types of sentences in criminal cases. The visit helped them gain an understanding that it is not only qualified lawyers that work in the legal system."
