Mock Bar Trial
The Bar Mock Trial Competition helps young people understand how the law touches every aspect of their lives, gaining an insight into how the legal justice system works.
We are given access to resources, including specially written criminal cases, to help students prepare legal arguments. After preparation, our school team will take part in a regional heat and go head-to-head with other schools to prosecute and defend the cases. Winning teams will then go on to compete in a National Final. Students who take part are encouraged to think critically, build arguments and boost their confidence. Through enabling students to interact with legal professionals, the competition helps develop employability skills. The experience will help students develop a sound knowledge and understanding of the role of law and the justice system in our society.
