Bar Mock Championships
Posted on: 13th Nov 2018
In November, a team of our students travelled to Southampton to compete at the regional Bar Mock Trial Competition. The competition immerses students in all aspects of a criminal trial, as they take on the roles of barristers, witnesses and various court staff to present cases to a jury sitting with a real judge.
Although there were far too many outstanding performances to note, Madeleine, Maddyson and Emma impressed as they made their debut as barristers, persuading the jury that the evidence was in their favour and exposing weaknesses in the other teams' arguments. Court Clerk Emmie played her role so convincingly that she was approached for assistance by another school who believed she was one of the official court staff.
Despite the high calibre of the competing schools, our students maintained their resolve to make it through the early heats of the day to the regional final. Witness Abigail, for example, held her nerve in a particularly brutal cross-examination. The judge singled Saja out for her emotional performance and said that, if she does not choose a career in law, he expects to see her acting on the West End!
In the regional final, Plymouth High School for Girls beat John Hampden Grammar School by a substantial seven points. Preparations are now underway for the national final of the Bar Mock Trial Competition in Edinburgh early next year.
