IDEAS FOR PARTICIPANTS SO FAR

 I HOPE THOSE NAMED ARE NOT OFFENDED BY THIS LIST WHICH IS MEANT TO HELP GIVE THE IDEA SUBSTANCE AND BODY PLUS BE PLATFORM FOR PEOPLE’S INNATE TALENTS TO COME OUT.

Use Legal drama scripts play Martha costelloe but model on real lawyers videos? in order to learn how to speak, collapse in hysterics, feel unworthy, etc a key component.

Get over Courtroom Fears Exercises not least of all myself.

Courtroom Play all get one another sent down/defended

TRIAL: Criminal  of course!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Presiding Lawyers could decide on Cases to be Trialed I imagine  a Mags Case with some curveballs thrown in?

Directors Kate Hillier Non Lawyer Director Lawyer  Lawyer Director and Co-Founder

Initial Major Appointment of Major QC I have someone in mind. It would make my day if he came on board as Joint Co-Founder.

Executive Board oversight etc

Legal Ed,  Legal Ed check of Participants, Potentialities also always Save UK Justice Campaigning  always goal in mind better to defend advocate to the public lawyers etc The School Version is doable and possible.

CBA, The Criminal Bar Association*** Who else!!!!???

CITIZEN JUDGES PANEL I think it’s a great idea for Participants to judge each others efforts openly on Twitter so convos can be read and archived for Post-Trial -Follow-UP

composed of all Participants.

LAWYERS JUDGES PANEL

A selection of QC’s  Star Juniors Juniors  Sols Firms Sols reflecting CBA Policy of solidarity with our Solicitor Comrades.

REAL JUDGE

Ideas?!!!!???? Judges so  Candidates MUST be able to stand up to questioning from the Judge and provide Evidence using Case Material as gotten from those supporting the Trial/ing.

Nice one! Eleanor Laws QC?(who always wins her Cases) Obs Lawyer? who is a PT Judge?

THE CRIMINAL BAR ASSOCIATION TO BE PRESIDING GOVERNING SPONSOR ORGANISATION

In context of course…

The absolutely brilliant PROPOSED COLLEGE OF TRIAL ADVOCACY AT THE INNS  via @NigelPascoeQC so Save UK Justice obvious bods to help carry this forward and only one’s in contention.

FAN CLUBS/TRAINER GROUPS/ I SHARE JOHN COOPER QC WITH CHUNKY MARK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If I can get him on board my ideal Candidate as he is on the cutting edge of Law where the shit hits the fan and rubber hits the road on entrusting public with a genuinely good knowledge of the Law (this of course can and must be argued to the contrary to put the opposite case)

I like the idea of Participants having their own sponsoring Fan Clubs who believe in them who can spur them on when they are on the verge of giving up. I think it is good psychology to have backers, to be arrogant, to step out on the  Citizen Legal Version of  Red Carpet and pose and pout glamorously for one’s admirers!!!   Fan Clubs are good for the ego, ego boosting and  would inject a Feel Good Factor into Non Lawyers needing to feel their worth. (Campaigning and  Mock Trial pref -ing)

QC’S BACKING I THINK ALL QC’S WHO WISH TO BE ON BOARD

MOTIVATION

For Save UK Justice, for oneselves, for something on the CV?for the public understanding of Law and developing it and learning it in the first place. Also to make Save UK Justice proud!!

Lovely picture…..

PROBLEMS PROBLEMS PROBLEMS

Problems of work-life balance.  Nightmares of adults arrogant if they get it.  Punters uncertainty and unworthiness. Active participation and support of  Save UK Justice with Legal Follows is definitely an Asset.

Travel.  Finance. Budget, Ed (For First Year Law School version prefably).

MOCK TRIAL  

BPP Law School*** University of Law  Sponsorship/educational assistance? also Video, Youtube, Skype etc as means of doing same thing.

We need a Level Playing Field Legal Ed wise, but it is good for people to

be inspired by Go-Getting Non Lawyers./

Court Visits are a must from Mags to Supreme Court?

Lord help me get this from brain to  Real Life worthily, excellently and make this Legal Task (Us Non Lawyers thankfully get trusted with Legal Tasks)   a job well done and  pleasing to all the Save UK Justice Lawyers out there  I/we are privileged to follow.

Update

One idea I have is the creation of a Joe Public/Members of the Public do Advocacy org is if the public do real mock trials of various sorts including JR it can be used to create an appetite for what the law is like and should be like in their everyday experiences.

So I propose that once the public grasp a panoply of legally complex ideas ie devils advocacy, fair trials for obviously guilty defendants, human rights etc that they could call for a restoration of our Criminal Justice System and the return of Legal Aid.

It goes without saying that only proper Law that makes lawyers happy would be practiced in this context I don’t want weeping into archbolds.
