Objection Your Honour: Mock Trial
Teacher - Saani Bennetts
Ages 10+ years
“I would like to draw your attention to an inconsistency in the witness’s statement…”
This term we will extend our critical and analytical thinking skills as we learn about the legal system in Australia. Students will have the opportunity to prepare for and participate in a mock trial as well as other engaging activities that help develop logic, reasoning and a better understanding of legal matters, civil and human rights.
Each week we will learn more about the legal system and also work toward holding our own mock trial at the end of the term. The mock trial is a criminal case with characters based on a well-known fairy-tale. The case involves high-level thinking, but also has a degree of levity that makes this class enjoyable and fun too!
