Walker Morris helps give A-level students insight into the legal profession
Parklane Plowden Chambers and Walker Morris have provided 10 A-level law students with a unique insight into the legal profession by running a mock High Court trial as part of a week of work experience.
The students, from Notre Dame High School in Leeds, were given just more than a day to study the evidence for a road traffic accident case and to prepare for the trial.
The boardroom at Walker Morris’s offices was converted to a court room and the trial was kept as true to life as possible, complete with wigs, gowns, a witness box and even an usher played by counsel Gareth Price.
The whole proceedings were presided over by barrister Kaiser Nazir, acting as the High Court trial judge.
The experience is part of work that Walker Morris and Parklane Plowden are running with PRIME, an organisation committed to providing work experience in the legal profession to students from less-privileged backgrounds.
