Law schools should organise more court visits

A walk along the corridors of justice

It is possible to get lost in the winding corridors of court complexes when you are visiting a court for the first room.

On its face, a court is little more than the main building with many small courtrooms inside. You can find lawyers deeply engrossed in commentaries and preparing their arguments at the court libraries. At the canteens, there are tables where lawyers gossip and others where the discussion is about an issue of law. Courts seemed to pay little or no attention to the ordinary litigant. Lawyers on the other hand, were demigods.

Most students only get an opportunity to attend court during internships. But in those few weeks, there is rarely time to explore the court. More exposure to the court would also allow students to make better decisions about their careers.
