The Criminal Justice system is about the police, the court, and the sentences which work together to maintain the law in our society. In the UK the most severe punishment is life imprisonment however in the US, China, India and other places, the Death Penalty exists.
You be the judge is an interactive game where your students hear a criminal case and then decide what sentence should be passed. They can then compare it to what actually happened.
A great tool for lessons in ethics, politics or history.
