The Mock Court Room

 

Refurbishment works to the Frankland Colloquium Room in the Faraday Complex have now completed with the exception of the installation of a lift which is due to complete in February 2018.

The facility, which was built in the existing Frankland Colloquium Room (LA20,)  features a raised judges bench with 3 seats, an authentic court room atmosphere with LED backlit courtroom emblem on the wall, a clerks desk, witness box and lawyers desks. Complete with state-of-the-art technology to allow for a multitude of teaching styles.

The aim of the project was to transform the Frankland Room of Faraday in to a Mock Court Room which will also double up as a “non-law ‘standard’ teaching space.” This has now been acheived and feedback has been really positive from around the University from both satff and students.

Several court rooms were studied carefully across the country during the design phase of the project to ensure the facility truly replicated the modern day court room look and feel. To improve access to the room, a lift is currently being installed which will be operational at the beginning of February 2018.
