A Regional Coordinator is the intermediary between the local legal network (barristers and judges) and the Programme Coordinator for the Bar Mock Trial Competition. The role is flexible, but responsibilities may include:

·         Recruiting and matching legal mentors for the schools in a regional heat

·         Recruiting the volunteer judges for the day

·         Helping to run the heat on the day, for example making the opening speech or briefing the judges

·         Liaising with the court staff to arrange particular additions to the heat, for example a judges’ lunch

·         Arranging for chambers to sponsor the heat or part of the heat

 

The Regional Coordinator works with the Programme Coordinator throughout the process, but is particularly valuable as a source of contacts in a particular region. The role can be as involved or hands off as the Regional Coordinator prefers and the time-intensive work is always done by our staff.
