St. Benedict Students Win Mock Trial Competition

January 15, 2004 - St. Benedict Catholic Secondary students participated in the 2nd annual mock trial competition held at the Sudbury Courthouse recently. Groups of Grade 12 Law students from both the Sudbury Catholic and Rainbow District School Boards competed in the day long trials which involved Crown and Defense teams consisting of three students per team. Trials were limited to one-hour in duration to allow for opening remarks, examination and cross-examinations of witnesses and concluding summations. All trials were presided over by sitting Judges of the

Sudbury Courthouse. Crown and defence teams were marked on a point system with the teams with the highest marks going head to head in a final round. Appearing in the photo from St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School (L-R) are; Jeanne Skelly (Law Teacher), David Corelli, Matt Williams, Andrea Catalano (Grade 12 Law Students), Teresa Stewart (Principal) Erin Holmes, Joseph Toffoli, Trisha Teale, (Grade 12 Law students); Stephanie Baker and Bridget Daily, (Lawyers for the firm Weaver, Simmons LLP), and Judge Gordon. The St. Benedict’s Defense team consisting of Corelli, Williams and Catalano emerged with the victory over the Lockerby Crown team in the final round to win the mock trial competition.
