    Ask the sol if you need to do anything or help. Read the case file if they will let you or if not familiarise yourself with how tribunals work.

    Just listen and observe. If you have any questions then pick a convenient time to ask them, normally after or during a break. Thank the solicitor for taking you.

    Go to the toilet before it starts, probably make sure you have had breakfast plus take some paper and pen where you cna make notes or write down questions for later. the solicitor might ask you a few questions to see if you saw what was going on or you cna ask questions later, which can also show them you were paying attention.

    Thanks and I believe pen and paper is a must. Might do some exercise on note taking so that I can keep up with the pace. Thanks!

    I dont know what sort of tribunal it is or even what sort of student you are etc. I wouldnt worry at all. If you dont know any background to procedure then you might wnat to check that out and read some of the leaflets they make available to the public. Just google the type of tribunal or look at seomthing like citizens advice.

    Just observe and you will be fine.
