Ask a Justice

Ask a Justice

The Supreme Court offers students, following a successful application, the opportunity to have a live question and answer session with a Justice from their own classroom. If the application is successful, a Justice will connect via video to the school or college to participate in the face-to-face session.

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