Southwark Crown Court (next to Hays Galleria) is always in the newpapers with high profile cases.

It seems to be the most interesting court in London after the Old Bailey.

Anyone ever been there to sit in the public gallery? I was thinking of spending an afternoon occasionally to watch British justice in action. Is it worthwhile? And where can I find the upcoming court cases on the internet ?

Under a series of common law decisions and recommendations from the Judicial Studies Board, the majority of hearings at Crown Courts should be heard in public - ie anyone can wander in, sit down and watch the (very slow) movings of British justice.

Some stuff - especially hearings in family division, crown courts involving kids and sex cases - is done in private, but reasons why should be made clear by court clerks. Much of the rest is open season...

It's worth going down - just make sure you sit in the public gallery (ushers/clerks will direct you) and remember to TURN YR MOBILE OFF...!!!!!
