Warwick Bar Society is pleased to announce that sign ups for our annual Witness Examination Competition have now opened for 2019! Sign up form linked below.
If you enjoy dissecting the arguments of witnesses, challenging and exposing falsehoods, this is the competition for you. Whether you desire a career at the Bar or just wish to make a witness flounder, the advocacy skills you will derive from cross-examinations and examinations-in-chief are very transferable and attractive to employers.
You will be competing in a team of two; one of you will act as the witness, the other the barrister (switching position each round). Every team will receive the same problem prior to the competition’s commencement in Week 3 of Term 2, although preparation is minimal.
The winners’ names will be engraved on the competition shield.
The DEADLINE to enter is Tuesday 15th January 2019 (23:59 GMT). The competition will commence the following week (w/c 21st January).
