Congratulations - more NCTJ law exam success!

Apr
17

Congratulations to the Year 2s and MAs who passed last month's NCTJ Court Reporting exam. We had an almost 100% pass rate with six people achieving grade A. Jemma Collins topped her own joint-best score by a CfJ student in an NCTJ law exam with 85%! Well done everybody.

Court Reporting exam

Mar
08

I've put a final test paper on the website - please use this as part of your revision. You can e-mail your answers to me if you wish. It's the last session next Friday before the exam on March 20th - it would be good to see more people making an effort to attend.

Shining a light - or not - on our courts

Feb
21

Two current stories must make us look closely at aspects of our court system. The Vicky Pryce trial fiasco yesterday showed how woefully inadequate that particular jury was at understanding even the basics of their role. But, of course, under the Contempt of Court Act we are completely barred from discovering anything about this jury and their discussions or deliberations. I wonder if any news organisation is going to go risk giving it a try? And the Oscar Pistorius case brings  acutely home to us how different other countries attitudes are to prejudice and a "fair trial".

Year 2s - important message about Voice Training

Feb
18

As so few of you now come in on Fridays, voice training is being moved to Thursday mornings 1100 - 1300. The first sessions will take place on Thursday March 14th. I will put a new rota on the newsroom door. As before, please make every effort to come to your session - if it's really impossible, please organise a swop with a colleague so that the time slot is not wasted.

Congratulations - excellent NCTJ law results!

Feb
14

Congratulations to the 32 CfJ students who passed last month's NCTJ Essential Media Law exam.  We had a pass rate of 85% - with ten people gaining A grades! This is a seriously good result in an NCTJ law exam - and I'm delighted both for the students and the Centre. Special mention must go to Jemma Collins who, with 84%, equalled Kat Cain's best-ever mark by a CfJ student in an NCTJ law exam. Well done everybody!

NCTJ Law exams in January - important info Part 2

Dec
11

As we've discussed all term, the NCTJ Essential Media Law exam for Year 2s and MAs will take place on January 23rd 2013. You MUST see Anastasia to register - and pay -  for this exam by FRIDAY. There is a three-week run-in period so by the time you return in January it will be too late.  This also applies to any YEAR 3s who plan to re-sit either EML or Court Reporting in January.

And in case my last blog was a bit ambiguous - I WILL be doing a Year 2 law session this Friday morning for anybody who's not taking the shorthand exam! Xmas sweeties provided........
