Doors Open Days @ Edinburgh Sheriff Court - 27th & 28th Sept

This weekend, during Doors Open Day, a wide variety of interesting Edinburgh institutions will be allowing the public access inside their buildings.  Between 9.30am - 4pm on Saturday and 9.30am - 4.30pm on Sunday, Edinburgh Sheriff Court will open its doors, offering a peek inside the justice system.  Staff from our In-Court Advice Service will be on hand on Saturday to explain about the range of assistance available from this project and from our Mediation Service.  Why not come along...?
