On Tuesday 25th June, a group of Bexhill College Law students went on an engaging trip to the Old Bailey and Royal Courts of Justice. The trip gave them an amazing opportunity to witness how cases are tried and appealed. The students were able to compare the setup of the court room and the conversations taking place.
Additionally, on Thursday 27th June, A Level and BTEC Law students participated in their very own mooting competition on the principle of murder and manslaughter. Mooting is a nationally recognised activity used to train future advocates to develop their research and skilful presentation of a case.
Performing Arts students worked with the Law department to act out the mooting scenarios prior to the mooting competition taking place. This allowed the Law students to gain context behind the crimes and picture a mock crime taking place. From this they were able to collect evidence to use to support and enhance their arguments.
Subject lead for Law, Gemma Webb, said, "We are very proud of all the students who took part. Their dedication and ability to use relevant terminology and cases was evident in their arguments. The students developed their confidence both with using the law but also public speaking.”
