Year 12 law students at the start of the competition
The results are in!
Well done to the Year 12 who took part in The Legal Apprentice Competition. 700 teams competed nationally and the final scores showed that the Windsor team achieved a place in the top 29 percentile. They did extremely well and gained a real insight into skills required to be a lawyer.
Update - 3rd April 2019
The students have now completed their final task within the competition. They were asked to upload a presentation which would showcase their presentation and interpersonal skills to stand out from the crowd. This was an exciting task that showed the students the reality of pitching for work in an extremely competitive legal market.
We now await the results of the competition which will be published in May.
Well done to the Year 12 Law students who completed task 2 of The Legal Apprentice Competition run by Kingsley Napley in partnership with The Times.
On Wednesday 13th March students were required to watch a witness interview via a webinar and answer a series of questions. The task focused on client care and communication skills, as well as their ability to extract key information from a witness interview.
The students had previous taken part in the first stage of the competition before half term on Friday 15th February.
Format of the competition
Students entering the competition will work as part of a team to complete a series of tasks over a 3-month period. The aims of the competition are to provide students with first-hand experiences of what it is like to be a solicitor and help them decide if a career in law as a solicitor is something they might want to pursue.
