Norwich School pupils in U5 to U6 travelled to Wood Green Crown Court for the Greater London round of the Independent School’s Mock Law trial at the weekend.
Mock Trial Competitions give budding lawyers a chance to experience life inside a courtroom and provide a unique opportunity for pupils to learn about the criminal justice system straight from professionals. Working on cases specially written by professionals in the legal profession, pupils work together in teams of crown prosecutors, defence barristers or witnesses to gain a unique understanding of the justice system while developing employability skills such as teamwork, public speaking and verbal reasoning.
The Norwich School team performed incredibly well under pressure. whilst up against schools from London and the South East. After three preliminary rounds, they got through to the final against Downside school.
A tough final round resulted in Norwich School winning the overall competition and going through to the National Final in London on April 25th 2020.
A huge congratulations to the whole team!
