The University of Law put on a Criminal Investigation Day for BHASVIC Law students
The University of Law put on a Criminal Investigation Day for BHASVIC Law students where students investigated the facts and evidence and built a timeline of events surrounding the case of Tony Martin, a farmer who shot a burglar at his Norfolk home in 1999.
Students took a close look specifically at gun culture in the UK and around the world as well as the technicalities of the trial. They had the opportunity to examine the case from the perspective of a prosecution lawyer and as well as a defence lawyer which enabled them to understand the different questioning styles that can be used.
This event helped to give our Law students an understanding of the roles of lawyers, criminologists and forensic police officers and how they interrelate with each other allowing them to consider potential career paths in these areas.
