Bar Mock Trial

Bar Mock Trial

On Saturday 19th November a team of 16 sixth form students participated in the Bar Mock Trial. The event took place in Belfast Courts of Justice. During the trials, the students took on the roles of Prosecution Barristers, Defence Barristers, Witnesses, Jury members, Court Clerks, Ushers, Court Reporter and Artist (see list below). The event was a great experience for those students who are interested in studying Law at university or those students who have an interest in the intricacies of the legal system. Well done to all those involved! Huge thanks to John Morrissey and Nicky Leonard our two barrister mentors, who helped prepare the team for the competition.
