Legal Eagles

Year 11 Legal students ventured to Melbourne in August.  After staying the night, they were nice and refreshed to participate in a simulated court with a chief judge.  They witnessed an interesting trial in the County Court involving two drug producers.  A few also ventured to the Magistrates court to see people defend the suspension of their driving license.  This was followed by a quick lunch and then two tours of the Old Melbourne Gaol.  There they visited the ‘watch house’ where people accused of crime were initially taken – equipped with a ‘padded cell’.  They also stood where Ned Kelly spent his last moments and observed the different types of punishment that was used.  A great time and all the students showed impeccable manners.  Many thanks to Mr Dows for his knowledge of great eats in Melbourne and his excellent driving skills.
