Bond University congratulates A.B.Paterson College on winning the 2010 Inter-school Mock Trial competition.
Year 10 and 11 students from A.B. Paterson College and Sheldon College battled it out in the Faculty of Law’s state-of-the-art moot courtrooms on Saturday, 16 October during the competition’s final.
Finals Judge and Bond University Associate Professor of Law, David Field said the competition introduces students to the courtroom environment while allowing them the opportunity to confront real-life situations without the real-life consequences.
The two teams performed a fictional legal dispute in a simulated court case where they represented Senior and Junior Counsels, Instructing Solicitors, Defendants and Witnesses.
A.B. Paterson College and Sheldon College took out the top scores in the region from the preliminary rounds held in September where 10 teams from south-east Queensland and northern New South Wales entered.
