Mock trial

Mock trial

On Wednesday 29 November, CLSG law society held its tenth mock trial in front of pupils from years 11-13. Our deputy head girl, Ella, was accused of conducting an illegal pyramid scheme by promising CLSG students the right to become salespeople for CLSG-themed earrings in exchange for a commission. The case hinged on whether Ella intended to provide the salespeople with products or not. The jury of students did not believe that Ella had made reasonable endeavours to produce the earrings and with compelling evidence from staff and students, found her guilty of fraud by a margin of 68% to 32%.
