Pencaitland Pursuers Win the Schools Mock Court Case Project Final!

The Presentation of the Anderson Strathearn Mooting Cup to our Pursuers

What a performance! After a long day in Central Hall Edinburgh we were declared the winners of the 2019 Schools Mock Court Project.

 

Everyone did fantastically well in difficult conditions – three judges and a full house of several hundred all watching for mistakes.  There weren’t any.  Without doubt what won it for us was cross examination.  Our witnesses coped admirably with hostile questioning, staying perfectly within character, whilst our solicitors made their witnesses squirm, even inducing one to admit he did it!

Well done to everyone.  You were a credit to the school.
