Mock Trial Competition

The Law Society of New South Wales' Mock Trial competition has been running since 1981.
Open to schools across NSW for students in years 10 and 11, the program aims to introduce students
to the NSW judicial system by providing practical experience into the running of a court case in a
true-to-life adversarial setting. Students learn advocacy, debating and problem-solving skills. 


And that's a wrap for another year!

Congratulations to the 2017 Mock Trial Grand Final winners Radford College, and the runners-up St. John Paul College. Well done to all the students, teachers and coaches involved in the competition throughout the year and on the day!

Congratulations to Jacinta Quee (Radford College), winner of the Sydney University Best Advocacy Prize.

Many thanks to our Grand Final Magistrates, Geoffrey Shelton, Ellen McKenzie and Magistrate Elizabeth Ellis for presiding on the day and for their continued support, dedication and enthusiasm for the Mock Trial Competition.
