We take you on a journey through the most fascinating real-life cases in Scottish legal history, exploring the issues and implications that these cases have had. Whether you're simply curious about crime in Scotland, or have an interest in pursuing a career in the field, our talks will leave you with a deeper appreciation of Scotland's rich legal heritage.

Criminal Law Series: The Guilty Act

Members of the Jury: the case of Mr Ernest Ramsay will be examined throughout the evening. Then you must collectively determine his fate. Will you accept his defence? Will you find him innocent or guilty? The decision rests with you.

In this talk, as we journey through true-crime cases, we will consider:

  • What is a guilty act?

  • What happens if you commit an offence by accident?

  • Can alcohol or drugs ever excuse crime?

Suitable for 16+ due to mature themes and discussion on crimes.
