Secondary School Mock Trials

Secondary School Mock Trials

The program is a partnership between the Ontario Bar Association (OBA) and the Ontario Justice Education Network. The OBA and OJEN joined forces in 2014 to expand the program to more schools and communities across the province.

Tournaments take place across the province, organized according to the eight judicial regions of the Superior Court of Justice. In most regions, multiple local tournaments take place in areas across the region, with the top teams from each local tournament meeting at the regional finals to determine the regional champion.

Schools that register a team will be matched with a local lawyer to act as their team coach.

Lawyer and Law Student Volunteers

Lawyers and law students can volunteer to coach a school team or judge at an event. Please note registrations to volunteer for the 2018 program will open in the Fall.
