ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS MOCK TRIALS (ESMT)

The Elementary School Mock Trials (ESMT) is a free program offered by the Ontario Bar Association (OBA). This program can accommodate students from Grades 5 – 8.

This year, to accommodate our new reality, we are offering teachers and students on-demand short video segments featuring a diverse range of the OBA’s volunteer lawyers, who provide age-appropriate overviews of key Charter and justice sector themes, including the history and ongoing importance of the Charter, a career as a lawyer, simple procedural courtroom examples, and pro-tips from art experts on capturing justice and the Charter in art. These tools will be available to teachers to download from our website, to help you incorporate elements of the history of the Charter into your curriculum. Stay tuned for exciting informative videos!!
