Our student workshops on the law are for students aged 14-18 and are aimed at developing students’ legal knowledge as well as their employability skills. The workshops are perfect for those if you are looking to take part in any of the Mock Trial Competitions or improve your team’s skills. Students experience a number of advocacy masterclasses, delivered by legal professionals.
There are plenty of opportunities for students to put their advocacy skills to practice, helping to develop soft skills such as critical thinking and public speaking. Students will also learn about the procedures which govern our legal system and will gain in-depth knowledge about a specific area of criminal law.
The sessions include a masterclass on opening and closing speeches, examination in chief and cross-examination and the opportunity to put these skills learnt into practice in a mock trial at the end of the workshop.
