Mock Court Project

At Fernhill School we are constantly looking for opportunities to engage our pupils with the wider community, whilst providing a larger platform on which to display their skills and talents.

Pupils in S3-6 take part in a Mock Court Project. Pupils plan a defense/prosecution for a personal injury court case and then present their case in the Court of Session before the Rt. Hon Lady Dorrian, The Lord Justice Clerk – Scotland’s second most senior judge. This is a competition against other schools and after the finals, all students will be invited to a black-tie Awards ceremony in the Signet Library.

Pupils are required to look through paperwork to try and decide the relevant facts and then consider the law applicable. Students attend six weekly tutorials held by solicitors, paralegals and advocates and special sessions are hosted by experts in the field of medicine and forensics.

This is an incredible opportunity for all pupils in which to become involved. They will gain skills in research, teamwork, critical thinking and public speaking. All of which, will benefit their future career and university ambitions.
