A selected group of Year 8 and 9 pupils visited Teesside Magistrates Court as part of their Magistrates Mock Trial Competition preparation.
The Magistrates’ Court Mock Trial Competition is part of the SmartLaw programme which helps improve young people’s life skills, their understanding of the justice system and the legal system, and helps them to understand that the law touches every aspect of their lives.
The Competition introduces the legal system to young people in an exciting way that has a lasting impact on all those involved, whilst developing student’s soft skills that will be of use throughout their lives.
The day involved observing real court cases to get a taste of what a life in the law would look like.
The Magistrates Mock Trial will take place on 10th March 2018. Lets go Team Wyvern!
