This week’s workshop we reach the culmination of the murder mystery genre with an exploration of the endpoint for all murder most foul: the courtroom!
Recovering solicitor Jonathan Shortall will be using his professional experience to guide us through both the realities of a murder trial and its fictional counterpart in this deep dive into all things legalatrical (he assures us that its a word).
We will be first looking at the makeup of the courtroom, rules of evidence and advocacy before taking a close look at some key legal drama scenes to see how these elements are incorporated, before closing out with a full-on mock trial!CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS ONE
