Magistrates Mock Trial Competition
A group of Citizenship students from Kingsway Park High School took part in the annual Mock Trial competition at Burnley Magistrates’ Court recently. The Magistrates’ Court Mock Trial Competition organised by the charity ‘Young Citizens’ helps to improve young people’s life skills and their understanding of the legal system.
