Magistrate’s Court Visit

18th November 2010

All Year 13 Psychology students have recently visited the Jersey Magistrates Court.

This visit involved sitting in and hearing cases presented to the Magistrate and a behind the scenes tour of the modern facilities that the Jersey Magistrates Court is afforded.

This is an annual visit under taken by Psychology students in order to facilitate their understanding of Forensic Psychology and how psychological processes affect how a verdict is reached. This annual departmental visit also serves to widen the students understanding of the diversity of issues that affect the local community.

During our visit the students were able to speak to the sitting Magistrate, Greffier and Head Usher about their roles. A really informative and enjoyable visit was had by everyone.
