Inside the UK Supreme Court: Its Role, Its Work, and Cases that Affect Us All

The Supreme Court has launched its first, free, online course for the public: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/inside-the-supreme-court

They have worked in partnership with Royal Holloway, University of London, to create the course. The aim is to give people a behind the scenes look at the work of the Supreme Court and Judicial Committee of the Privy Council (JCPC). The course is designed to increase awareness and understanding of the role and work of the Court.

The course is highly interactive. Content takes the form of articles, case studies, video interviews, quizzes, and mini lectures. Hosted on the social learning platform FutureLearn, everything is presented by academic experts from Royal Holloway, present and former Supreme Court Justices, and a range of people who work at the Court.

Registration is open now. The course will begin on Monday 21 February and learners can complete it in their own time, within the two-week window. We estimate that it will take four hours a week.
