people.The case held at District Court is serious in nature as it is the largest trial court in Australia and has anappellate jurisdiction. The most impressive scene is that the judge was asking the prosecutor in an inquisitional way. This is evident in the cross-examination of “how is that relevant”, “what you said does not matches the transcript” and “No, this is contradictory.” The judge was frequently asking questions and sometimes interrupted prosecutor’s speaking. There were moments that I can feel thejudge is adversarial. In accordance with the adversarial system , the judge is impartial like a “passive arbitrator” from classroom learning. However, that particular judge is very active. This demonstrates that judges read paperwork before court day, deliberate on the case, thus he could askfrequently. Reading cases effectively reduces the time taken on court, hence process of this case was very quick. At the observation time, I was doubting that whether reading the case before the oral hearing on court could influence the judge’s perspectives, make judge be tendentious or not. Since judges prepared for the cases, the proceeding at Parramatta District Court is not only relatively quick but also meticulous. Theoretically, whether the judge read the profile precisely does not mean injustice would occur, no causality is presented but preparatory work obviously improves efficiency greatly. Thus, all responders can feel the effort taken of district court judges to achieve justice. Local courts are profoundly important courts because they are where the vast majority of cases are heard . In R v Simon Bourke, video link is used, defendant and prosecutor are displayed on the screen, judge carried out the trial.

The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
