You will be sent a case study in advance to acquaint yourself with the facts in readiness for the course. You will be assigned various roles to perform that may include a combination of speeches, evidence in chief, cross-examination, making submissions or applications. You will be tasked to prepare fully for the trial just as you would in practice.
Initial guidance is given by the trainer on the various aspects of a Magistrates’ court trial. You then prepare within teams, with guidance from the trainer, in readiness to perform your roles during the mock trial.
At appropriate stages, individual constructive feedback from the trainer is given to allow you to reflect upon your performance and build upon it, throughout the trial.
