On Thursday 4 April the SMS and BGS VCE Legal Studies students had the opportunity to visit the Supreme Court of Victoria. This visit enabled the students to see and experience the Supreme Court processes and procedures in operation. It also enhanced their understanding of the knowledge and skills studied in both VCE Unit 1 and VCE Unit 3 Legal Studies. During their visit, the students were very fortunate to have the opportunity to meet with the Honourable Justice Tim Ginnane of the Supreme Court who spoke to them about the resolution of both civil and criminal matters within the jurisdiction of the court and the many challenges faced by judges in the Victorian legal system.
