Mock Trials

 

The Mock Trial Competitions provide a unique opportunity to introduce your students to the criminal justice system through an immersive, active learning experience. 

The Mock Trials take students out of the classroom and place them in courtrooms, where they play the key roles involved in a criminal trial: from clerks and legal advocates to ushers and jurors. Using specially adapted cases – based on real trials – young people compete against teams from other schools.

Every year we coordinate more than 70 Mock Trial events in towns and cities across the UK. Each event gives young people from 500+ schools a better understanding of the judiciary system. The competitions below are available based on young people’s age, geographical location and school type.

Want to build your students’ confidence prior to entering a Mock Trial? Take a look at our Student Workshops on the law.
