About the Event

Workshops are designed to encourage students to think critically, understand how to build a case, and ultimately to enjoy the experience.

These dynamic virtual mock trial workshops are designed to provide participants with a true-to-life interactive experience of a criminal law case in a virtual Crown Court, from start to finish. Participants will assume the roles of barristers and witnesses and carry out a full trial.

In the build-up to the day of the mock trial, participants will be sent a link to a webinar presentation providing a fantastic overview of the English legal system and possible careers in law.

To prepare for the trial, participants will receive a set of instructions (as barristers receive these from solicitors) along with the case files, and they will be told which role they will be playing and how to prepare for it.

A tutor, who has a legal background, will act as the judge overseeing the trial, sealing the fate of the defendant!

After the mock trial, the tutor will run a Q&A with students to around the study of law and law careers along with what they can be doing now to reinforce their CV.

If over 15 people put their names forward, names will be drawn at random, from those who have RSVP'd and are paid members.
