Mock Trial - Law careers event

Mock Trial run by the Exeter University Bracton Law Pro Bono Group.

Aims

To inspire girls to enter Law as a profession, to be more knowledgeable of the laws of the land/ important rights & laws that affect us all - and how the court system operates. 

To strengthen our ties with the local schools.

Background

Exeter University Bracton Law came into school last year to give a series of lunchtime presentations on Law (Human rights, cybercrime, criminal law, careers options…) They are coming in again this January to run some similar sessions. We did a mock trial last year with just our students attending. It was enjoyed by all, so we thought we would extend it out to other schools too this year.
