LAWS interim acting director Greg Sitch says that the LAWS Harbord Mock Trial Club was a huge success. “The Harbord students developed and argued the kinds of complicated criminal cases that are taught in the first year of law school, and they did it well.  The club is yet another excellent example of the kind of student leadership that the LAWS program encourages both for high school students and for the law students who ran the club,” he says. The mock trials and debates, he adds, also help students develop public speaking, critical thinking, literacy, and teamwork skills. “These are all important skills to have as they move on to university,” he adds.
