    Is the term you refer one that originates in the UK/Ireland/Europe? I believe that they apply (laypeople) and deal with mundane crimes (like traffic violations) with the more serious ones, like murder, being passed upwards in the court system. There are 3 that sit on a "bench" at one time, like a mini-jury.

    Many Thanks

    Everyone on these boards is great, really helpful, many thanks!

    PS Is there anything that the law master doesn't know about - surely it must take all day to reply to all these posts, are you legally qualified, barrister, solicitor, lawyer, ect?.


    Great boards, really useful as reference material for school projects.

    Grammar schools require you to 'read around the topic' to get to know more this is the ideal place to do it!

    As our law teacher is away for a while, i may be visiting more regularly- thanks again!

    C Ya (4 now!)

    I'll be back!
    Is there anything that the law master doesn't know about- Any one know the answer?
