    Q194: Can I visit the court before I have to appear as a witness?

    Yes. Most courts will have a Witness Service and if you contact them in advance of the case they can arrange for you to look at a courtroom. It probably will not be exactly the same courtroom that you will have to give evidence in, but they are all very similar.

    Visiting the court beforehand does help some people feel less intimidated about giving evidence. Knowing where everyone sits in the court room and who they all are may help put you at ease.

    A link to the Witness Service referral form can be found in the Related Information.
