Mock Trial

A mock trial is a simulated court case in which teams contest a fictitious legal matter presented in the court system. The cases are presented by two teams - a prosecution/plaintiff team and a defence team - made up of students playing the roles of barristers, solicitors, witnesses and court officials.

The Interschool Mock Trials Competition provides an enjoyable, dynamic way of introducing students to the law. It provides students with an opportunity to learn valuable skills in research and the development and presentation of a persuasive argument.

St John Bosco College has been involved in the Mock Trial Competition presented by the Law Society of New South Wales for many years, with teams involving Year 10 and Year 11 students. What better way to learn about the law and judicial system than by running a court case in a true-to-life adversarial setting?
