The Bar National Mock Trial Competition is now open!
The competition that pits school students against each other in real courtrooms is back for its 22nd year.
Students assume the roles of lawyers, judges, court staff, witnesses and defendants in a battle to win their case. The experience is a safe and exciting insight into the workings of the legal system.
Now in its 22nd successful year, the Bar National Mock Trial Competition involves over 2,000 students, 300 lawyers and 90 judges.
The competition is open to non-fee paying secondary schools and FE colleges in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It costs £95 to enter.
Participating students must be in Years 10-13 in England in Wales, Years 11-13 in Northern Ireland and S4-S6 in Scotland at the time of the competition heats (November 2012).
Entry closes on 22 June 2012.
