5 hour, highly-detailed Citizenship unit with 39 slide PowerPoint, complete written scheme of work, teacher introduction letter and 19 well-differentiated and easy to follow accompanying worksheets. This pack has been produced by the Criminal Cases Review Commission in conjunction with EC Resources and Tes.

It is up to your class to investigate the crime through mock trials, examining fingerprints and DNA forensic clues and discovering new evidence - all whilst learning an incredible amount about the workings of the criminal justice system and the appeal process along the way. Is Lee guilty? If not, how can he prove it? Can you help? This exciting, engaging and active day has had fantastic feedback from trial schools so far and we know your students will enjoy it too. Please let us know how it goes by leaving us a review! You can find out more about the Criminal Cases Review Commission and the work they do here.
