Julia Leo, lecturer for the Criminology segment of CMI’s Criminology and Forensic Diploma course, organised a trip out for her students on Wednesday the 27th of November. Taking her two classes with her students got some real life observation into a murder trial case that Julia’s currently working on.

As the five week trial was coming to a close it was perfect timing for a fantastic educational experience whereby students got to experience the various barristers making their closing speeches to the jury. Student’s also got to experience other criminal trials and sentencing hearings occurring in the building on the day.

Julia herself stated that the event is “often referred to as a highlight of the course” and that it “essentially brings [her] class lectures to life for the pupils watching the courtroom drama“.
