Partner Rhys Wyborn visited Nottingham Trent University recently to deliver a mock tribunal session to students studying Business Management and HR in the Business School.

Accompanied by leading HR professionals from industry to help facilitate the session, the mock tribunal was designed to showcase how tribunals work and the HR challenges companies are often faced with. Whilst giving a realistic insight into how a tribunal hearing would take place, the students also had to opportunity to hear about real life scenarios and to ask Rhys questions about tribunal process and other areas of employment law.

Rhys said:

“It was great to work with Nottingham Trent again and to meet the students on the HR course. They were all very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and the feedback on the session was that it had been very well received.


This is the second year Geldards has run this event and we will be returning next year as the session has proved so popular. We are proud to build these links with one of our local universities and to support the students there with this practical experience.


We are now exploring other opportunities to become more involved with the university and to see what input we can give for students to have a practical view of the legal issues we see across our desks. The academics of law are hugely important, but students also need to understand how the skills they are learning apply in practice and this is where we can support the university with sessions like the mock tribunal.”
