Run your own Mock Trial
Did you miss the chance to enter one of our Mock Trial Competitions this year? Don’t worry; you can still download our free resource: 'Running a Mock Trial' and set up your own classroom court case.
‘Running a Mock Trial’ contains a full guide and materials for teachers, participants and organisers wanting to run a mock trial based on either a Crown Court or a Magistrates’ Court. It contains full information on the criminal justice system, procedures, and a specially prepared case. It also contains suggestions for two smaller scale activities, around the issues of considering the evidence and sentencing.
Teachers or organisers don’t need to have detailed knowledge of the law or the criminal justice system before using this resource.
Entering a Mock Trial Competition next year (2007-2008):
• The Bar Mock Trial Competition (15-18) will be accepting entries from May/June 2007
• The Magistrates’ Court Mock Trial Competition (12-14) from July - Autumn 2007.
