The Supreme Court
The Supreme Court is the final court of appeal in the UK for civil cases, and for criminal cases from England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Supreme Court hears cases of the greatest public or constitutional importance affecting the whole population. Your visit will consist of an introductory talk, an exploration of the educational exhibition area and the opportunity for students to observe part of an appeal hearing.
UK Parliament and House of Commons
In the UK, the public elects 650 Members of Parliament (MPs) to represent their interests and concerns in the House of Commons. MPs consider and propose new laws, and can scrutinise government policies by asking ministers questions about current issues either in the Commons Chamber or in Committees. This is an opportunity for you to see how policies are debated, scrutinised and defined for the general public. The sessions allow you to see history being made first-hand in an interactive and informative way.

Guest speakers from previous summers
Dr Nigel Warburton
Dr Lynda Shaw
The class was encouraged not to jump impulsively to conclusions, but to think logically, applying all the skills and knowledge we had learned in the previous days. I truly believe that throughout the two weeks, through court visits, mock trial, explanations of the law and debates in class, the course instilled a sense of passion for law in me, which I truly didn’t expect to happen.
