They learnt about the use of different genres in communication, especially about formal language and the language of the courts.

Upon arrival, the students were also briefed by Magistrate Mohammad Marzuqi bin Haji Sabtu. They witnessed a short court session in the High Court, before a second briefing and a question and answer session with Chief Magistrate Pengiran Masni binti Pengiran Haji Bahar at the Magistrate’s Court.
