"The BMT was challenging and enjoyable, especially to see how a court works and the sentencing that is handed down by Judges on cases such as drunken assault and rail ticket fraud. It was an eye-opening experience! I took part in the Court Reporters Competition and it was challenging to report the full details of a case in less than 350 words."
Holly Payne

"It was great to get first hand experience on how a criminal court case is conducted in Newcastle Crown Court heard by one of the circuit judges. Those of us who took on the role of barrister found it an exhilarating experience despite the nerves!"
Matthew Sample
