We will be considering two different real life cases of murder which occurred between 1900-1975. Participants will be expected to listen to the evidence, discuss the case and attempt to reach a verdict, based on what they have heard. No advance reading or knowledge of the English judicial system is needed. The cases have been selected with an eye to the insight they can give us on various aspects of our judicial system and social history.

No advance preparation is required, but students will find a pen, a notebook and an open mind invaluable. Although these are all real cases, no distressing crime scene photographs will be used.

Please note:- These are the same cases that were studied in April & May 2022.
