On Monday the 8th and Tuesday the 9th of May a law course was held for all TY students. The first day of the law course was held up in the mercy hall. It was hosted by a man named James Fahy who had been a barrister for 30 years. He talked to us firstly about different law situations. He then spoke about how different cases would be dealt in court such as robberies, car crashes, and murders.
Later on in the day he started showing us different videos of cases. Some were quite sad as he showed us a video of a young boy who was involved in a car crash. He also talked about underage drinking and how it takes a big toll on people.
The next day we went down to the court in the Garda barracks. In there we were each given a script and we held a fake court case. The court case was a lot of fun and it was really interesting to be involved in a case. I did enjoy the court case and learned a lot from it.
