2019 Grand Final

On Wednesday, 23 October 2019, the season’s two undefeated teams competed in the Grand Final in Court 1 of the Supreme Court in Stirling Gardens.

The Honourable Justice Robert Mazza, of the Supreme Court of Western Australia, Court of Appeal, judged the trial with grace, warmth and humour, offering gentle guidance to the students so that they were still learning up until the final moment.

The winning team was Wesley Gold of Wesley College, coached by Claire Rossi and Rein Squires. Their opponents, the Carey Counsellors from Carey Baptist College, was a team of Year 10 students who attempted to prosecute a defendant who was alleged to have unlawfully used a restricted access computer system at a university.

The night was the culmination of a fantastic season of mock trials. 1,080 school students participated in 2019, and 180 trials were held. 681 students achieved accreditation towards their high school graduation through their participation. In all, 112 teams from 56 schools took part in the Competition. 91 volunteer lawyers acted as judges throughout the year, and 57 legal practitioners and law students coached the school students at participating schools.
