Mock Trial Team Makes Grand Final

On Tuesday 15 September the Yr11/12 team of Olivia, Chaz, Jadviga, Lulu, Aisha and Sophia were again at the Supreme Court for the Semi-Final of the Law Society Mock Trial Competition for 2015.

In this sixth round for the year, the students faced a formidable opposition in Christchurch Grammar School.

The 'client' for MLSHS was a film production company that was suing an actor for a breach of contract.

The team had to overcome two very competent barristers, a couple of tricky witnesses and some damning evidence against them to emerge victorious and proceed to their third Grand Final appearance in 3 years.

As always, the Mount Lawley students had put in many hours of preparation into their case and all team members contributed to their success.

Well done to all the team and we wish them all the best for their record breaking attempt to win three in a row in this very tough competition.

The Grand Final will be held on the 15th of October in the Supreme Court of Western Australia and it will be adjudicated by the The Honorable Chief Justice Wayne Martin AC.
