Hi. Sorry if this is dragging up a post from the past, but I was hoping one of you could advise me.
I met a Crown Court (Circuit) Judge the other week, and he gave me his contact details and said I should ring him and arrange to come into court with him at some point. I am about to do this, (later this morning once he's out of court) but I was hoping to do a bit of research first, so that I don't sound like a fool.
Firstly, the number he's given me in a Crown court, is that likely to be his actual office, the switchboard, his secretary/admin staff, or a group of judges' office? I'll probably find out before anyone replies but I thought I'd ask anyway, in case anyone might know. What do you think? He's given me his mobile as well, but I think I'll call the landline (which says p.m. only, presumably becasuse he's in court a.m.)
Secondly, what am I actually gonna be doing all day, would you think (from past experience, if any)? Whatever it is I'm not really fussed I'm sure it will be very helpful, but I'd like to have some sort of an idea before I go in, so that I can try and "prepare" as it were. I would guess sitting next to him in court, following him around all day, maybe chatting with him about things in some breaks, but maybe that's way out?...
