Judge for Yourself workbooks

Our Judge for Yourself workbooks step teachers through how to run a Judge for Yourself session with their class over two lessons and provide learning exercises that focus on key curriculum areas using legal principles from each court case.

An extension of the highly popular Judge for Yourself online tool, each workbook focuses on one of the Council’s four interactive court cases based on real-life events from the Queensland Magistrates, District, Supreme and Childrens Courts.



Our collection of refreshed and new posters based on Sentencing Spotlights highlight sentencing trends in Queensland in an easy to understand way.

Free to download, these posters are a great resource for high school classrooms.

Judge for Yourself

Every week in Queensland, our courts sentence people who have broken the law. But have you ever wondered how judges and magistrates decide what sentence to give?

This interactive program provides you with the opportunity to walk in the judge's shoes and 'sentence' an offender.

Hear the court case. Decide the sentence Judge for Yourself.

You can also book a free Judge for Yourself workshop to be held at your school if you are within 2 hours drive of Brisbane City.
