Law Society takes advocacy online

In these unusual times of lockdown, CLSG Law Society has not been deterred from consolidating its London-leading position in advocacy.  

Two of our top barristers, Jolie and Niamh (both in Year 11) have been mentoring students from different year groups using a customised scenario based on an imagined crime at a boarding school.  The aim is to establish a core skill set with a particular focus on cross-examination.  

Jolie, mentoring Year 9, said: "It has been a great opportunity to work with the younger years, who are wonderfully receptive.”  Niamh, mentoring Y11, added: "Remote learning has inspired many lively debates.”  Mr FitzGerald, mentoring Y10, is grateful to them for their hard work.  

Mock Trials IV and V await in the next academic year!
