Dogs at Law Court – level 3

13-03-2018 07:00

The Attorney General for New South Wales, Australia, believes that less anxiety means more reliable evidence, so dogs are coming to law courts in Sydney to reduce stress.

The dogs are there for people giving evidence and many victims of crime have welcomed the scheme. People hope that the calming pooches could even improve the administration of justice.

Difficult words: Attorney General (the most important legal officer who represents the state), anxiety (a feeling of worry), pooch (a dog), the administration of justice (how people decide what is fair).
