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.
