—Description.[src]

This courtroom is one of the Ministry of Magic courtrooms on Level Ten. It was smaller than Courtroom Ten, but had a very high ceiling, that gave the impression of being stuck at the bottom of a well. There was a high, raised platform in which interrogators sat behind a balaustrade. In 1997, the Muggle-Born Registration Commission used this courtroom during the hearings of Muggle-born wizards.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

MBRC Courtroom (Brightened)

An aerial view of the courtroom (surrounded by Dementors) during the trial of Mary Cattermole in 1997.

  • To create the courtroom in the first part of the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, many elements of the set that served as Courtroom Ten in the fourth and fifth films were recycled. The set was reverted back to its original, smaller size (after being expanded for the fifth film), and the walls are now covered in black tile, replacing the Byzantine-inspired plaster and marble seen in the previous films and matching the rest of the Ministry sets. The fire bowls behind the stands have been removed, giving the set a much colder, darker feel. There are now four doorways on each side of the room, as opposed to the one in the corner, and the judge's bench has been moved from the side to the corner (where the original doorway was located). The balustrades on each side of the room now have five arches (they originally had four).
