Friday - District Court of NSW and Baker McKenzie

On Friday, the group began the day by visiting with Judge Zahra, a judge in the criminal division of the NSW District Court.  Judge Zahra gave a great presentation and, as always, was incredibly gracious and welcoming.  After meeting with the judge, the students observed several criminal court proceedings, including both criminal trials and criminal sentencings.

In the afternoon, the students visited Baker & McKenzie law firm.  Georgie Farrant gave a detailed and excellent presentation on white collar crime in Australia.  Along with the exceptional presentation materials, the Baker & McKenzie visit offered the students the opportunity to take in the amazing views across Sydney Harbour from their offices.
