Having previously sponsored the Young Citizens National Mock Trial competition, Brick Court is proud to have continued its sponsorship of Young Citizens this year by supporting their ‘The Law and Me’ competition. The competition invited students from Years 7 -13 to write a short essay on ‘Why Laws are Important’, to take part in a design task to envision and produce a drawing of ‘The Courtroom of the Future’, and to create an art piece in a medium of their choice entitled ‘What Justice Looks Like to You’.
The competition winners were announced at online event earlier this week, which involved an interactive legal quiz, a highlight reel filled with submissions from competition participants, and speakers including Derek Sweeting QC (Chair of the Bar Council), Michael Abiodun Olatokun (Research Leader at The Bingham Centre Rule of Law and an aspiring human rights barrister) and Jack Felvus (a Young Citizens Mock Trial Alumni, who is currently a law student and young magistrate).
The members of Brick Court Chambers congratulate all of those who took part in this year’s competition, especially the winners and runner-ups for their impressive entries, and give their thanks to Young Citizens for their valuable and dedicated work.
Brick Court Chambers is committed to promoting social mobility. More details of Brick Court’s “Centenary Challenge”, the primary focus of which is raising funds and providing support for social mobility charities, can be found here.
