The Mock Court-room


Refurbishment works to the Frankland Colloquium Room in the Faraday Complex have now completed.

The facility, which was built in the existing Frankland Colloquium Room (LA20,) features a raised judges bench with 3 seats, an authentic courtroom atmosphere with LED-backlit court-room 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 into a Mock Court-room which will also double up as a “non-law ‘standard’ teaching space.” This has now been achieved and feedback has been really positive from around the University from both staff 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 has also been installed.
