Juniors Project

For Senior Primary School Students

We send in tutors (sometimes by video link), one for the Defenders and one for the Pursuers, three times over the length of the project. For the first visit, tutors will introduce the project and the wealth of material contained on this website and thereafter split the group to show them how to prepare and serve their claim for money (initial writ by Pursuers) and for Defenders, how to deny monies are due (draft and intimate defences). The second visit will teach the children how to adjust their side of the story and to look carefully at their witnesses and productions. Each side will have to look at the arguments and answers from the other side and if appropriate, address these before the 'story book' closes. The final visit - to prepare for court. Throughout the visits, the tutors will also encourage the children with their other roles.
