Proelium Law Mock Court Trial

by | Mar 16, 2018 | Proelium News

Proelium Law was asked to carry out a mock trial at Education Without Borders 2017, demonstrating a likely approach by a claimant’s law firm should a claim for negligence against an organisation reach court.

We were delighted to welcome to stage Carolyn Pearson, CEO of Maiden Voyage. Whilst in ‘real life’ Carolyn is an award-winning, creative, innovative web start-up entrepreneur, digital technology leader and international speaker, for the purposes of our trial, she ably played the role of our witness, ‘Ms Tumble’.

Proelium Law Partner and Solicitor, Adrian Powell, acted as the defendant’s lawyer, with Richard Morgan, Director and p/t Judge,  leading the questioning of Ms Tumble.

In the scenario Ms Tumble works for a Higher Education Institution as the Health & Safety Manager. Our trial shows how even the most professional of witnesses, with ‘presence’, can be put under considerable pressure by a claimant’s barrister.

We were invited to replicate the mock trial at the recent Borderless 2018 conference, where our witness was a diligent but ill-trained Security Advisor, and the claimant an injured Aid Worker.

We look forward to showcasing our mock trial again at the Enterprise Travel Risk Conference in June.
