Mock Trial - Justice Education Project Service / Community Education & Volunteer Service
  
Introduction

The 13th Mock Trial – Justice Education Project 2019-2020 is solely organized by The Society of Rehabilitation and Crime Prevention, Hong Kong. This year, the Project has attracted 28 schools to participate.

Justice education has always been the core part of this Project. Through mock trial competitions and other educational activities, students can increase their understanding of criminal justice system in Hong Kong. Those activities can also deepen their understanding on the rule of law, social justice, citizenship, and develop the ability of critical reasoning on social justice and criminal behaviors.

 

 
Our Rationale

The “Rule of law” is a core value of Hong Kong. Adolescents, as the pillars of society in future, need to understand the social system and their respective civil responsibility.  Therefore, enhancing their understanding on the rule of law, justice and civil responsibility is of paramount importance in order to help them develop positive values.

The Mock Trial-Justice Education Project, which adopts an experiential learning model, can help adolescents deepen their knowledge of justice and rule of law through highly interactive mock trial competition and other related activities. In the mock trial competition, students from participating schools can experience the whole process of trial, acting in different roles, such as counsels for the prosecution and the defence, the accused and witnesses. As such, adolescents can examine criminal behavior and related social issues from different perspectives and reflect on the rule of law. 

“Origin” is the theme for this year’s project. During their year-long exploration, students can trace back to the original meaning of rule of law, reflecting on its importance. Students are also drawn to reconsider the reasons for having a society with rule of law and understand their positions in building such society.

 

 


 
Our Goal
Through mock trial competition and other activities, we aim to:
  • Develop students' self-confidence, problem-solving skills, adaptability skills and spirit of teamwork, so as to nurture their positive attributes;
  • Nurture students' active learning, enhance their concept about rule of law, justice and civil responsibility and critical thinking, so as to strengthen their moral judgment;
  • Explore the consequences and implications of criminal behavior in multiple perspectives, such as, individual level, peer level, family level, societal level, country level, so as to strengthen their awareness of crime prevention.
