Mock Trials Competition

On Saturday 23rd March The Lord-Lieutenant attended The Surrey Magistrates’ Mock Trial Competition.

The Magistrates’ Court Mock Trial Competition is part of the Law in Schools programme helping to create the foundations for students to develop into legally capable young people. It aims to introduce the legal system in an exciting way that has a lasting impact on all those involved, whilst developing students’ soft skills that will be of use throughout their lives. The pupils taking part in the competition are from many different backgrounds and walks of life. In the roles of lawyers, witnesses, magistrates and court staff, students prosecute and defend specially written criminal cases. Teams compete against each other in real Magistrates’ Courts in front of real magistrates.
