It was an active morning for the Law School Preparation students yesterday, as they delved deep into family law. First up, students were asked to argue the case of the Hendersons, who were in the midst of a potentially messy and ruinous divorce. Whilst Mr Henderson wanted to keep the holiday home in the South of France along with the family home in London, and Mrs Henderson was adamant that she should have the family’s formidable collection of artwork, both were more than certain that full custody of their two children, William and Sophie, should lie with them alone. Students did a sterling job of cutting through emotional hangups to get to the finer points of the law, and a satisfactory resolution was made between the two parties.
Then it was off to London, where a treat lay in store. Students journeyed to the Lyric Theatre where they paid homage to the undisputed King of Pop, Michael Jackson, in watching the hugely popular and successful Thriller Live. Students compared favourite songs on the coach ride over, and then were lucky enough to see them performed before their very eyes; some couldn’t help but shed a tear during the evocative They Don’t Care About Us. On the coach home, it was a sing-along all the way, leaving students quite ready for bedtime on their return to Yarnton Manor!
