Visits for schools, colleges and universities
Although the Court building will be closed for visits from schools, colleges, and universities, we will be continuing with our educational tour programme using the Microsoft Teams platform.
We can give a Power Point presentation about the creation and work of the Court, showing its place in the separation of powers and in the legal hierarchy.
We also discuss issues such as how Justices should be appointed and the role of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council as the final court of appeal from many Caribbean countries.
We can then expand into wider discussions around some previous UKSC cases, for example the right to die or the law surrounding joint enterprise. We can include our "Women in Law" feature and a short video from Lady Arden, one of our Justices. The tour can also include excerpts from our introductory film presented by Stacey Dooley.
These tours can be tailored for students of a wide variety of subjects including Law, Politics or History.
The tours aim to be 45 minutes long and can be given between 10 am – 2 pm Monday to Thursday.
Schools or students must have access to Microsoft Teams, which should be part of the 'Office 365' package or can be downloaded for free.
