Weston College law students get legal advice

Legal experts of the future experienced the corridors of power on a visit to the Houses of Parliament and the Supreme Court.

Weston College’s A-level law students headed to London, firstly to listen to Speaker John Bercow’s traditional opening ceremony to Prime Minister’s Question Time in the House of Commons.
They heard the Second Reading of the Health and Social Care Bill with peers Lord Robert Winston and former Court of Appeal Judge, Lord Mackay.

Weston College law lecturer Alexandra Sermon said: “It was fascinating. Students enjoyed the Parliament Education services interactive ‘making laws’ workshop to consolidate their understanding of the legislation then met Weston MP John Penrose before a tour of the Supreme Court.”

Student Kirsty Bancroft said: “Some of us are applying to university to study law so the day provided an insight into the profession and the relationship between Parliament and the highest court in the land.”
