Pascal children improving their knowledge of the legal system

Limassol-based Pascal private school children participated in a mock trial over the weekend to improve their knowledge of the legal system and critical thinking.

The third annual high school mock trial of Pascal English and Greek school took place on Saturday with students and professionals from the Cyprus bar association.

“Knowledge of the legal system, critical thinking and writing a convincing and coherent argument are among the necessary qualifications and skills for a successful career in law,” a relevant press release said.

Simulating a real trial, various theories are tested during the mock trial with the participation of volunteers. Students have the opportunity to learn about the legal system, understand the components of a state and gain knowledge about the law, society and themselves through a practical experience outside the classroom.

This level of communication helps increase students’ basic skills, public speaking, analytical ability and confidence.

“Mock trial promotes collaboration between students of different abilities and interests, while allowing them to get in touch with the processes of our legal system,” the press release added.

Professionals from the Cyprus bar association took part in the process, giving participants the opportunity to work with them as well as receive feedback and advice on improving their skills.
