Ask a Justice

Ask a Justice

The Supreme Court is offering students the opportunity to have a live question and answer session with a justice from their own classroom.

These sessions run between the months of January and May 2022. The live sessions offer students with a keen interest in law a unique chance to (virtually) meet and speak with a Justice.

We received a large number of applications from schools across the United Kingdom and we have now selected our 12 finalists. Finalists will be contacted in due course.
