SmartLaw is a programme from Young Citizens.

Mock Trials Volunteering

Young Citizens’ Mock Trial Competitions are well-established programmes reaching approx 7,000 12-18 year olds each year across the UK.

The trials depend on the help of thousands of dedicated magistrates, barristers and other legal professionals who volunteer their time to organise the heats in a variety of different roles, from supporting the students with their preparations before the competitions to being a judge on the day.

Member of a barristers’ chambers or law firm? You can sponsor your local Bar Mock Trial Competition heat! Please feel free to email us with any queries.
