Mock trial

Marsden High School is a proud participant in the NSW Mock Trial Competition.

These simulated court cases are held between competing schools in which the participating student teams contest a fictional legal dispute in a mock Local Court.

Many of the cases quite deliberately deal with situations that students are likely to encounter in their daily lives. 

The competition provides students with unique opportunities to develop their skills around advocacy, problem solving and persuasion. 

They must be confident, flawless in their presentation, well-practised and adaptable to changing evidence and courtroom situations. It demands high levels of commitment and achievement that test young people in constructive ways.
