On 11th & 12th November actors from Synergy headed out to Leeds, London, Birmingham, Bristol and Manchester to provide realistic and engaging role play trials for the BPP Law School Advocate of the Year competition. This is the third year that Synergy has provided actors for the competition.
Students were judged on how they dealt with client conferences and various advocacy roles during short, realistic trials acted out by a combination of actors and role-players from the Synergy Theatre Project.
Esther Baker from Synergy Theatre project added: “Synergy was delighted to work once again with BPP University Law School, sending 14 ex-prisoner role-play actors to five cities to create an authentic experience for those taking part in the BPP University Law School Advocate of the Year competition.
“The ex-prisoners found the experience both extremely valuable and engaging and an opportunity to use their past, negative experiences towards a positive outcome. We very much look forward to working in partnership on future initiatives.”
