Parklane Plowden Chambers and Walker Morris provided ten A-level law students a unique insight into the legal profession by running a mock High Court trial, as part of a week of work experience.
The students were given just over a day to study the evidence for a road traffic accident case and to prepare for the trial. The boardroom at Walker Morris’ offices was converted to a court room and the trial was kept as true to life as possible, complete with wigs, gowns, a witness box and even an usher played by, Counsel, Gareth Price. The whole proceedings were presided over by Barrister, Kaiser Nazir, acting as the High Court, Trial Judge.’
Students who took part were: Samuel Heyhirst, Sara Djoudi, Amelie Thewlis, Shyaam Bundy, Ishfaq Shafiq, Nick Leadbeater, Mark Dawson, Zaynah Baksh, Emma Ramsey and Heather Conboy (all lower sixth).
