Challenge Club – Hampshire Magistrates Mock Trial

On Saturday March 9th 2019 a group of Year 9 Challenge Club students took part in the Hampshire Magistrates Mock Trial in Southampton Crown Court. The performance  by our Defence and Prosecution lawyers, our 3 magistrates, our legal adviser and usher and our very credible witnesses and defendant was highly commended by the Magistrates and Judges overseeing the event. The students have worked hard for several weeks to understand the case and the witness statements and put together questions and speeches, while remaining within court procedure.  The professionalism of our team was superb. The experience may have even convinced a few to look at a career in Law. Well done to everyone involved.
