Bhayani Bracewell Helps to Inspire Budding Lawyers

13th March 2012

Bhayani Bracewell, Sheffield's niche employment law firm, is supporting local year 12 students by sponsoring the 2012 Inter-School Mock Trial Competition -  a project aimed at inspiring young people in our region to pursue a career in law.

2012 will see the pilot for this exciting project - a collaboration between Bhayani Bracewell,  Sheffield Hallam University and Sheffield Law Society which entails an interactive competition culminating in students presenting a mock trial, judged by a jury and practising judge, on 20th June. On the run up to the final of the competition, students will have the opportunity to gain a valuable insight into what a career in law entails by attending workshops and working with legal professionals, as well law academics and other students who are already studying the law degree at SHU.  They will also be able to practice the skills they learn by taking part in competition heats on 26, 29 and 30 March. Jay Bhayani, partner at Bhayani Bracewell says I am passionate about law and also about giving people as many opportunities as possible, and so am delighted to be able to support this exciting project.  It is a fantastic opportunity for our budding young lawyers to get out there and see what a career in law is all about.   Not only will they have the thrill of taking part in such an interesting challenge, they will be able to pick up some really valuable debating and advocacy skills and have great fun at the same time. Jay can be contacted on 0114 272 1884 or by email at
