The Magistrate's Blog (2005-2012)

This blog has migrated to www.magistratesblog.blogspot.co.uk This blog is anonymous, and Bystander's views are his and his alone. Where his views differ from the letter of the law, he will enforce the letter of the law because that is what he has sworn to do. If you think that you can identify a particular case from one of the posts you are wrong. Enough facts are changed to preserve the truth of the tale but to disguise its exact source.

Day Out

There's going to be an Open Day at Harrow Crown Court (Hailsham Drive, Harrow HA1 4TU) on Saturday 24th October from 10 am to 4 pm. All the fun of the judicial fair is on offer, including mock court hearings, visits to the cells and prison vans, children's drawing competition, fingerprinting, electronic tagging, video link demo, police cars, police dogs, try on a judge's wig (!) experience being on a jury, as well as displays from CAB, Prisoners' friends and family group, probation, CPS, magistrates, trading standards, Mental Health Commission, Legal Services Commission, and more. You might even get to speak to a real judge, without the inconvenience of getting arrested first.

It sounds good - I might even get along there myself.
