Annual service to celebrate justice

Legal representatives and dignitaries will take part in a procession through the city centre as part of the University of Wolverhampton’s annual justice service.

The 13th annual service to celebrate the administration of justice in the Black Country will take place on Sunday, 5 March 2017.

The High Sheriff of the West Midlands, Dr Keith Bradshaw, will join judges, magistrates, barristers and solicitors for the event at St Peter’s Collegiate Church, Wolverhampton.

Also taking part in the procession will be court staff, police officers, prison and probation officers and staff from the University.

Students from the University’s law courses will also be involved in the service.

Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Miceal Barden, said: “This annual event is a highlight in the University calendar and has become an important part of the civic life of the city. The service is organised by our Law School and is an opportunity to honour and celebrate all of those who work hard to uphold justice in our communities.

“We are delighted to work closely with representatives of the justice system in the Black Country, which provides valuable work experience and job opportunities for our students and graduates.”

The procession will be led from the University’s Wulfruna Building by a mace bearer, with the service beginning at 11am. It will be followed by a reception at the University’s Chancellor’s Hall.
