Mock Trial Experience

On 4th February, Harris Experience students attended a Mock Trial set up by The Lawyer Portal at Harris Academy Bromley.

The morning was spent discussing the British legal and court system and legal careers. The students were then taught debating skills and engaged in ‘the great British biscuit debate’ with custard creams coming out on top. After break the students were introduced to a case study and assigned roles such as defence lawyer, prosecution lawyer, victim, witness, usher, judge, jury. They discussed the case and planned the arguments they would make if they were involved in the real trial.

After lunch all the students were invited into the hall for the real mock trial where some from each school were selected to play the roles. The students really rose to the challenge and special commendations to Emma for taking part in the full mock trial and conducted herself fantastically in front of Harris Experience students and their teachers from a number of Harris academies. The students wrote the following reviews of the day:

Emma: The trip to participate in a mock trial was interesting. We did a fun practice debate on biscuits to practice rebuttal and our persuasion skills followed by time to prepare and analyse the case information given to us. The trial itself was heated and exciting with good arguments and a good range of difficult questions in the cross examination of the witness and victim. The jury came to a fair decision based on the principal of conviction only if they believed the defendant was guilty ‘beyond reasonable doubt’.

Heer: I enjoyed the trip to Harris Girl’s Academy Bromley for the mock trial day and we learnt about the English legal system, participated in a mock trial. I really liked the final trial and the preparations we did as a group earlier in the day. Overall it was a fantastic day to be a part of and something I would like to do again if given the chance.

Nathaniel: Today we were taught all of the basics of British law and a crown court trial. It was a good learning experience and opened my eyes to the jobs and opportunities available in a legal career or working in the court justice system.
