    Normally you can just turn up at a court and watch any trial that is ongoing, except for at the youth court, or where a person under 18 is involved in the trial, which are totally private except for a couple of journalists.

    I think you can just go along (but leave the rock outfit at home and wear a suit)

    You can go in without any arrangement. But be wary that you'll potentially be sat next to emotional family members of the victim or the defendant, so it might not be all ****s and gigs as you might have expected. Also journalists normally take up the seats very quickly for big trials like this, so you might be turned back.
