Mock Trial Program in Bosnia and Herzegovina

On June 21-22, 2018, NCSC in cooperation with YIHR BiH organized a two-day training of trainers (further in text "ToT") for professors from four high schools from the cities of Sarajevo and Banja Luka. The ToT included presentations of the material for the course that will be implemented in fall 2018 in the aforementioned high schools as well as case files for the inter-school Mock Trial competition. The best four students in all four high schools will be invited to participate in a final Mock Trial Competition mid-December.

Practical exercises of the material were delivered by project staff as well as by the professional education consultant for the Mock Trial Project – Mrs. Sanja Vlaisavljević. The ToT consisted of practical exercises from the Teachers’ Guide, in order to demonstrate activities that will be conducted in the classroom. All participants took an active part in all the exercises, and activities and discussions at the ToT were well received by participants and resulted in constructive comments and suggestions for curriculum improvement. 

The course will be implemented in all four high schools in September 2018, and the final Mock Trial competition will take place mid-December 2018.
