Children will be "taken to court" today to learn why bullying is wrong.
Youngsters from Graisley Primary School in Wolverhampton are to take part in a mock court session run by students from the University of Wolverhampton.
About 20 Year Six pupils aged between ten and 11 will join in the role-playing sessions where they will act as prosecution and defence on imaginary bullying scenarios.
They will don wigs and robes worn by real-life lawyers and take on the role of prosecution and defence over imaginary bullying cases.
Students at the university's school of legal studies will master-mind the mock court.
Law lecturer Margaret Wash, who is to take on the role of court clerk, said: "We find the kids respond really well to the court role-plays and love wearing the wigs and robes.
"It helps get across the message that bullying is unacceptable and also introduces to them the role the law plays in everyday society.
"They learn that bullying, whether it is physical or mental, is a very serious matter.
"The actions of bullies are often so serious that if adults were involved they could be taken to court and it is important that they understand this."
The exercise is in response to concerns expressed by Year Six pupils who were worried about bullying when they got to secondary school.
Head teacher Wendy Briscoe said: "We are very pleased to be working with the University of Wolverhampton on such a ground- breaking project.
"This initiative reinforces the message that bullying is wrong and teaches children about university and careers in the law."
Last week The Birmingham Post reported how the parents of a bullied Birmingham pupil planned to take out an Anti-Social Behaviour Order against his playground tormentors.
