Chief Justice Richard Malanjum has called for more exposure to students of the ins and outs of the justice system, saying this should begin in schools.

He said the judiciary would play a dominant role in creating awareness among the younger generation, especially students, to respect and understand the law.

“Law subjects are only taught in universities. We feel it should begin in schools, to impart knowledge on how the courts operate,” he said at the launch of the Courtroom to Classroom programme at SMK Prescint 8(1) here today.

He said such programmes are part of school curriculum in the US, UK and even the Philippines.
