I highly recommend the Royal Courts of Justice Tour to all students… Even if you don’t live in London, it’s worth the effort! Firstly, the tour is led by a very supportive, experienced and knowledgeable guide who has personal connections with the legal profession. I won’t say more as it will spoil the surprise.

Secondly, the Royal Courts of Justice is one of the most important and historic courts in the country – a must see place to visit.

Thirdly, with your friends on the tour you’ll have the chance to find your way around this huge court and sit in on some of the action. Finally, don’t assume this tour is just about the Royal Courts of Justice. You’ll also discover where most of the barristers in London work. Very special thanks to our guide for an inspiring and fascinating tour.

Amanda Hamilton, our guide, was very friendly and helpful and gave us a very fascinating and exciting tour. She explained to us all the history of the courts also giving so many examples.

It was an overwhelming experience and the buildings were very impressive. Inside the Royal Courts (fascinating and imposing Gothic building)  we had to pass a security check (friendly guards), and then we went from the central area, simply gorgeous, to the other buildings connected to it. Inside there are also some great exhibits on display with lots of information. It was fascinating to sit in on a court case. 

I definitely recommend a guided tour organised by NALP. It was so interesting as you will hear some great old stories about past court cases, and much more accurate information.

Thank you, Amanda Hamilton for a very informative and breathtaking experience.
