Hosts the annual
 
MOCK CRIMINAL BAIL HEARING
& MOCK CRIMINAL TRIAL 
 
The gym was transformed into a virtual courtroom complete with a judge’s bench, counsel tables, a jury box, a well, etc.
 
Students observed a mock crime being perpetrated followed by an arrest. The accused was then held for a show cause hearing. Finally, the accused was brought to trial before a judge and jury. After hearing the evidence and the instructions from the presiding judge, a verdict was rendered.
 
All the players are real including the Judge (from the Ontario Court of Justice), the Justice of the Peace, the Crown Attorney and the Defence Counsel. A number of students werebe selected to be either witnesses at the trial or members of the jury.
 
The invitation was open to all teachers and students, however this initiative was of particular relevance to students enrolled in Law or Law- related courses
 
*** Thank you to the Canadian Italian Advocates Organization for supporting this important initiative.
