Bar Mock Trial

Dumfries High School took part in the Young Citizens ‘Bar Mock Trial’ competition on the 2nd November 2019 at Glasgow High Court. The team consisted of 14 senior pupils from S4-S6 who have spent the last 8 weeks preparing their cases for trial. Pupils took on every role in the court; advocates, witnesses, clerk, macer and jury. This was their first time competing and the group more than held their own against more experienced teams from across Scotland and came away with an amazing 4th out of 10 teams. DHS is extremely proud of this team of dedicated young people and lawyers of the future. Congratulations!
