Inside Court 10


Today I was at the Sheriff Court in Edinburgh. The court is not normally open on a Saturday, but today was a special event organised by the Faculty of Advocates and the Education Department of the City Council, whereby the lawyers, court officers, jury members and witnesses were all high school pupils from 8 different schools across the city particiapting in mock trials. The courtroom was real, the judge was real and the kids were fantastic. I'll describe more about the cases and processes in the coming days. Given that photography and filming is not allowed in Scottish courts, this was a golden opportunity for me to bring you something you wouldn't normally see.

Dear Daily Photo blogger. I'm sorry for the generic message, but I wanted to get this to as many of you as possible.

I have set up "The Daily Photo Spot" on Fanpop. If you go there, you can enter your specific City Daily Photo blog (Add link). Paris, London and Dubai are already there, so it would be great to see all of you DP Bloggers listed.

While you are there, vote for the others!
