We recently welcomed His Honour Kevin Sleight, Chief Judge of the District Court of WA to SIDE as a guest speaker for the Year 11 Politics and Law course.

This was a wonderful opportunity for students to engage personally with a member of the judiciary and collect up-to-date information which directly relates to the course.

His Honour spoke with students via Saba (web conferencing) and covered topics such as the rule of law, appointment and removal of judges, the role of courts, the jury system, the process of an indictable trial and current reforms.

Politics and Law teacher Lindy Precious organised and hosted the visit.
