The first meeting of Minitrials 2013 will take place in Mr.McGlynn’s room (B10 in the English Department) at 12.35 during lunchtime Wednesday 25th (12.35 sharp!)

Calling all budding Ally Mcbeals and Kavanagh QCs (really struggled to think of a male example of a lawyer you would know! Considered Atticus Finch from “To Kill A Mockingbird” but thought that it was, at best, wishful thinking! )

So if you are interested in studying law, journalism or media in some capacity this is a great opportunity for you to experience the world of law first hand! you will be given the opportunity to work in teams to prepare a defence or prosecution case, benefit from the expertise and experience of professionals and, on the day of the event, experience the drama and atmosphere of a real Sheriff court room as you participate in a mock trial against another school in East Renfrewshire.

(Please note that places are limited and priority will be given to those students who have applied to study law).

If you want to apply or simply find out more, come along to B10 next Wednesday Lunchtime
