Mock Trial Update
July 26th, 2017
Round 3 of the Mock Trial Competition at the Supreme Court of WA had our teams up against Kingsway College. Our Year 11s had some experience under their belt, but nevertheless went the extra mile with before school and Sunday morning training sessions with their coach Dr Jessica Henderson to get their cases well and truly prepared.
Our teams had the challenging task of prosecuting an accused stalker under Section 338E of the Criminal Code. It was more challenging because as the Prosecution, our teams had the burden of proof. It’s hard to successfully prosecute stalking cases as the standard of proof is high.
All that hard work preparing for the case paid off, with both teams came away victorious in their third and final round for the season. Congratulations to our Mock Triallers, and a special thank you to our dedicated coach and Lesmurdie SHS alumni, Jessica Henderson.
