Hii, i’m 17 years old and i’ve got work experience in a barristers chambers.

Tomorrow i’m going to be shadowing a barrister in a murder trial in court. I’m really excited however i’m a bit nervous as i don’t really know what to expect as i’ve never been to court before😬

Could anyone give me any information as to how everything works and what i’ll be doing?

You'll likely sit behind the barrister and just observe. All you really need to know is to stand when the judge enters and leaves, but you'll be directed by the courtroom staff as and when you need to do that.

Your barrister will make sure you do and dont do stuff so dont worry too much. Just sit back, relax and enjoy it.

Listen to what your barrister says, but know you can't make notes, and can't be on your phone at all. Just take in everything, it's an amazing experience to have!
