Debate Club

A group of Year 9 and 10 students started a new competition as part of the Debate Club - Legal Mooting.

The team gets given a brief which contains a summary of facts for a legal case which they then have to act as either prosecution or defence for. 

Some students also use their drama skills to act as witnesses for the barristers to question. 

Last night, our team was the prosecution arguing that a defence of duress should not apply to a bank robbery case! 

They did very well. We didn’t win but everyone had a great time.
