Jill Edwards Judges High School Mock Trial Finals

The Ontario Justice Education Network and the Ontario Bar Association give high school law students the opportunity to competitively argue a legal case. This year Halton public and Catholic high school students did a fantastic job presenting the case of R v. Delaney, a case about whether a mother failed to provide the necessaries of life to her child.

Jill Edwards volunteered as a judge for three days of mock trials, including the mock trial finals, where she judged students from over 20 local high schools. The caliber of the students participating in the mock trials this year was incredible — let’s hope some of these students become Halton lawyers!
