Procurator Fiscal Mini Trials Competition

mt1Nine senior students from Wester Hailes Education Centre participated against other Edinburgh schools in the Procurator Fiscal Mini Trials Competition held on Saturday 8th October.

Our young people worked very hard in the weeks leading up to the event and prepared their own speeches and arguments. On the day our prosecuting team won their trial and were congratulated by the judge.

This was an excellent opportunity for our young people to experience the Scottish legal system in action as well as visiting all parts of the Sheriff Court (including the cells!).

 Well done and thank you to all the participants for their hard work and enthusiasm.mt2
