Mock Trials Update
Round 3 of the Mock Trial Competition had our teams up against Kingsway College at the Supreme Court of WA. Our Year 11s now 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, getting 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 made more challenging because as the Prosecution, our teams had the burden of proof. It is hard to successfully prosecute stalking cases as the standard of proof needed is high.
All that hard work preparing for the case paid off, with both teams coming 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.
