Mock trial experience at UWE Bristol

Our Philosophy and Law Society members had a great time taking part in a mock trial experience at UWE Bristol. In an event shared with Colston's Girls' School, the pupils took on the roles of prosecution and defence lawyers, the defendant, witnesses, clerk and the judge.

Their task was to persuade an impartial jury of the guilt or innocence of a suspected burglar and the defence team managed to secure an acquittal. They had a fantastic time and were commended by the course leaders for their confidence during interrogation and convincing acting.
