2021 Winners

In Court 1 of the Supreme Court of Western Australia, the Hon Chief Justice Peter Quinlan adjudicated the 2021 Mock Trial Competition Grand Final for the two most successful teams of the season.  The school students were delighted and honoured to appear before the Chief Justice.  The winning team, the Legal Legends from St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ School, successfully prosecuted their case in a friendly but keenly contested courtroom battle.

The original case material for the Grand Final trial was produced by Ms Sam Hemachandra and Ms Grace Ritter of FourLion Legal.

The Law Society of Western Australia thanks the Mock Trial Competition’s Premium Partner, the Department of Justice, for providing the use of the courts for the 175 mock trials that took place in 2021.  The Law Society also thanks the many members of the legal profession including associates, practitioners and law students who volunteered their time this year to assist by coaching teams or adjudicating as mock trial judges. The Competition would not be possible without their efforts. We also thank staff and security officers at the Supreme Court of Western Australia for their support of the 2021 Mock Trial Competition.

Credit also to Francis Burt Chambers, University of Western Australia and Curtin University for supporting students to experience the possibility of entering the legal profession and playing a role in access to justice.
