Educational Visits

We offer interactive, educational tours to UK schools, colleges and universities throughout the year. Visits are free of charge and consist of an introductory talk given by one of our Information Officers, time in our educational exhibition area, a look at the courtrooms, and an opportunity for students to observe some of an appeal hearing (depending on the court schedule and the space in the public seating areas).

Tours last approximately 45 minutes and cover the history, role and work of the Supreme Court. The talk can also be tailored to fit specific curriculum areas/learning outcomes.

We are currently offering tours at 11:00, 14:00 and 15:00 Monday - Thursday, and additionally at 10:00 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. To keep everyone safe in our building, there is a strict maximum of 25 per tour, including teachers and group leaders.

Virtual Tours

We can give a PowerPoint presentation about the creation and the work of the Court, showing its place in the separation of powers and in the legal hierarchy.

We also discuss issues such as how justices should be appointed and the role of the Judicial  Committee of the Privy Council as the final court of appeal for the many jurisdictions around the world.

We can then expand into wider discussions around some previous UKSC cases, for example the right to die or the law surrounding joint enterprise.

These tours can be tailored for students of a wide variety of subjects including Law, Politics or History.

The tours aim to be 45 minutes long and can be given at 11:00, 14:00 and 15:00 Monday - Thursday, and additionally at 10:00 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Schools or students must have access to Microsoft Teams, which should be part of the 'Office 365' package or can be downloaded for free.
