young citizens charity - the magistrates court mock trial competition

The Magistrates’ Court Mock Trial Competition is a national competition organised by the Young Citizens charity. It helps young people understand how the law touches every aspect of their lives, gaining an insight into how the legal justice system works. Schools are given access to resources, including a specially written criminal case, to help teams prepare legal arguments. After preparation, each team takes part in a local heat and goes head-to-head with other schools to prosecute and defend the case. The winners then compete in a regional heat with a new case.
