The Secondary School Mock Trial Tournament

In 1983, the Canadian Bar Association introduced Law Day to celebrate the signing of the Charter and to educate the public on the law. In Ontario, the Secondary School Mock Trial Tournament is the main event. Students are given a scenario that details an alleged criminal offence and act out the roles of players in court. This exercise gives students a great learning experience while teaching them about the part we all play in Canadian law.

Fleet Street Law’s Omar Ha-Redeye participated this April by volunteering as a judge. Omar has been taking part in this tournament for years. He believes that it’s a great way to inspire high school students to consider a legal career. It also raises awareness and gives insight into advocacy and the trial process.
