Cadbury students raise the Bar in Mock Trial

Mock trial students

Cadbury students competed in this year's Bar Mock Trial competition this week, pitting their knowledge of the law and critical thinking skills against other A-level students across the Midlands in the annual competition held by Young Citizens. As part of the legal based competition learners get to gain a deeper understanding of the law and the legal system.

Students on the Bar Mock Trial meet weekly to perfect their legal skills and work as part of a team before going head to head with other Sixth Forms and Colleges. Law lecturer and Curriculum Manager Rachel James said "Our students did the college proud today, they've worked really hard to prepare for today and received some outstanding feedback from the judges who were really impressed with the standard of their work. The competition is a great experience for our students whether they're studying law with us or not."

The Bar Mock Trial is one of many enrichment classes taking place weekly across the college for students. Principal Julia Stevens added: "To hear the feedback about our students today makes me immensely proud. Enrichment is a really important part of student life at Cadbury and classes such as these provide students with unique opportunities to not only develop their employability skills but also their confidence."
