Courses at Ayrshire College
Business students visit the busiest court in Scotland
Ayrshire College students visited the Glasgow Sheriff Court recently, giving them the chance to learn about the justice system first-hand.
The visit was organised as part of the Business, Accounts and Administration students’ course, to provide them with the opportunity to experience a working day in one of the busiest courts in Scotland.
The day started with a talk from the Court Clerk about the layout of the courtrooms and the court schedule for the day. The students were then able to spend time visiting various courtrooms to watch proceedings from the public gallery.
As part of their course students study Scots Law, which includes topics such as criminal and civil court structure, offences, punishments, remedies and the roles and responsibilities of key legal personnel.
One of the students, Kimberley Parker said “the overall experience for our group was amazing and really informative. We enjoyed learning about how the court system works and to really appreciate all that goes on. There was so much to learn!”
About the department’s annual trip to the Glasgow Sheriff Court, Gayle Agnew, Business Lecturer said “feedback from students has shown this to be hugely beneficial as not only is it an extremely interesting day out, but it also gives them the chance to see the theory they have learnt in class from a real-life perspective.”
