National Justice Museum Podcast

Hello,

The National Justice Museum is the United Kingdom’s largest justice themed museum, operating out of a Georgian prison and Victorian courtrooms within Nottinghamshire, a range of universities and the police museum in the North-West of England and the iconic Royal Courts of Justice in Central London, and remains dedicated to assisting students with their future law careers, whatever form they may take.

As a result of this mission, we have collaborated with a retired judge within the British justice system and created a podcast featuring a diverse range of people within various integral roles within our glorious judicial offices. The second season is available to listen to (for free, of course) and we would love to offer you the link to share with your students. We believe it is our duty to educate and illuminate the intricacies of what real life is like working within our nation’s hallowed judicial halls. The highlight of the season is the finale interview with Kathrine Thirlwall, Lady Justice of Appeal. We can only hope that it helps your young scholars as they begin to help shape democracy and justice around the world. As a charity, we work exclusively on an external basis, seeking to add our voices to the cacophony of those seeking a fairer and more diverse world.

We hope you enjoy the episodes as they drop each week!
