Mock Trial Competition

What better way to learn about the law and judicial system than by running a court case in a true-to-life adversarial setting? This is exactly what students participating in the Law Society’s Mock Trial Competition do.

This renowned Competition has been running since 1981 and is open to teams in years 10 or 11 and up to the age of 21. It’s not only lots of fun – students also learn invaluable advocacy and debating skills at the same time.

The University of Sydney sponsors the Mock Trial Competition by providing a monetary prize to the winning advocate in the Competition.
