Lewes Crown Court Judge Michael Lawson QC,   has presented trainee journalists with champagne for their sparkling words on a court case.

The students from Brighton Journalist Works go to court regularly as part of their training to learn how to report cases.

Students Sophie Gallagher, Jimmy Nicholls and George Ward wrote such good stories from a recent murder trial their tutor sent them to the judge.

Judge Lawson said:  “It is important for open justice for journalists to be in our courts and I was most encouraged by the quality of reporting I saw from these students.”

And this week he presented Paula O’Shea, managing director of BJW, with a bottle of champagne for their efforts.

The students have all got new jobs so couldn’t be there for the presentation but Paula said she would be sending them some cash to make up for it.

Their tutor, Chris Chandler  said: “This is a wonderful gesture by the judge.  I, too, was particularly impressed by the high standards so many of our students reach.”
