For schools

As part of our commitment to informing the community about the law and legal profession, The Law Society of New South Wales supports a number of initiatives for high school students.

The main focus in this area is the organisation of a highly-regarded competition for high school students – Mock Trial – which helps to convey knowledge about the judicial system.

These interactive competitions allow students to gain skills in team work, listening, speaking, negotiating and debating. They also help teachers augment the state’s legal studies curriculum.


Mock Trial Competition – simulated court case competition for year 10 and 11 high school students.

Mock Mediation Competition - conflict resolution competition for Year 9 and 10 high school students.
