The event was hosted by the University of Wolverhampton and attended by Vice Chancellor Professor Geoff Layer, High Court judges, circuit judges, solicitors, barristers, magistrates, probation officers, police, civic and ecclesiastical leaders – as well as representatives from the university.

The event, held on Sunday, was organised by the School of Law.

A procession, led by the university mace bearer, moved across from the university before a service, which began at 11am.

Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Miceal Barden, said: “The service is organised by the University of Wolverhampton Law School and is an opportunity to honour and celebrate all of those who work hard to uphold justice in our communities.

“This annual event is a highlight in the university calendar and has become an important part of the civic life of the city. We are delighted to work closely with representatives of the justice system in the Black Country, which provides valuable work experience, placements and job opportunities for our students and graduates.”

The service was followed by a reception at the University’s Chancellor’s Hall.
