Courts Open Day: Day in the Life of an Accused

In this behind-the-scenes tour, you get to experience what it’s like to be an accused person — arriving at court, being placed in a holding cell, meeting your lawyer and pleading guilty before a judge.

This event includes a mock arraignment, plea hearing, prosecution opening, defence submissions and judge’s sentencing. Each participant will discuss their roles in the hearing as well as within the criminal justice system and answer questions from the audience.

Presented by County Court of Victoria.
