Mock Trials - Now Delivered Online via Interactive Webinars

The Lawyer Portal offers students of all abilities who want to pursue a career in law an insight into how the law works via mock trials.

These dynamic virtual mock trial workshops are designed to provide participants with a true-to-life interactive experience of a criminal law case in a virtual Crown Court, from start to finish. Participants will assume the roles of barristers and witnesses and carry out a full trial.

Workshops are designed to encourage students to think critically, understand how to build a case, and ultimately to enjoy the experience.

What Do Mock Trial Workshops Cover?

In the build-up to the day of the mock trial, participants will be sent a link to a webinar presentation providing a fantastic overview of the English legal system and possible careers in law.

In order to prepare for the trial, participants will receive a set of instructions (as barristers receive these from solicitors) along with the case files, and they will be told which role they will be playing and how to prepare for it.

A tutor, who has a legal background, will oversee the trial and they will be there to ensure the smooth running of the trial and helping the participants through the trial. The tutor will also act as the judge overseeing the trial, sealing the fate of the defendant!

At the conclusion of the mock trial, the tutor will run a Q&A with students to around the study of law and law careers along with what they can be doing now to reinforce their CV.

Upon completion of the course, participants will receive a certificate of achievement which they may keep for their own record and add to their CV / UCAS applications if appropriate.
