Frome College Year 13 Law students enjoyed a rainy but highly stimulating trip to Bristol on Tuesday 18 December.  They spent the morning at Bristol Crown Court, one of the busiest venues for criminal trials in the country.

Judge Mark Horton, who talked frankly about the delights and drawbacks of the legal profession, put our students through their paces in the witness box, and entertained us.  Students then had the experience to observe part of a real, and very serious, trial from the public gallery.

Following this, they walked up the hill to the Wills Memorial Building at the University of Bristol, where second-year undergraduates had prepared a university-style seminar on human-rights law. ‘Which rights are absolute and unalterable, and which can be modified according to circumstances? Should our right to privacy outweigh the right to freedom of the press? Are there limits to freedom of expression?’ They all grappled with these and other interesting questions, ably assisted by the enthusiastic university students.

Our thanks go out to all our hosts for a fantastic trip opportunity.
