Sounds good. Active education (that looks pretty fun) with a lot of realism.

Yeah - so if I had a choice of a prison sentence in an adult court - or a ticking off in a youth court - In know what I would choose -this is just a cop out for young people who want to break the law -they just go to a youth court and get away with it

It was a good video, I would like to be a judge. Imagine how hard it would be if they didn't speak your language.
I always wanted to bang the hammer and then be heard, unlike my usual life at school.

That is a really good idea! Only five per cent of youth court respondents reoffend, plus, like that Keitha girl said, they know what it’s like to experience all that. Also a great way to get more kids into careers in law. I’ve been thinking of becoming a court judge when I’m older lately, so if the UK had these I’d be quick to sign up. Go youth court!
