We are looking for a new Project Leader to coordinate our OBA/OJEN Competitive Mock Trial Program (OOCMT)! Are you passionate about law and education? Are you interested in providing experiential learning for students and coordinating large scale events? Do you have skills in program design? This position is for you!
The OOCMT Project Leader will coordinate the annual OOCMT program and participate in OJEN organizational activities.
About the OOCMT
In 2014, the Ontario Bar Association (OBA) and OJEN partnered to expand the provincial mock trial program which the OBA had first developed and operated since the early 1980s. Since its founding in 2002, OJEN has supported the growth of local mock trial programs with administrative and development support, as well as with financial support through the OJEN/LFO (Law Foundation of Ontario) Mock Trial Fund.
The OOCMT isn’t one single mock trial tournament, but a network of 17 tournaments (16 English tournaments and one French tournament) across the province that follow the same basic format and use the OOCMT rules and the official case which is released each year. Tournaments usually take place within a local courthouse.
The 2018-19 school year saw 168 secondary schools and over 1600 students in the province participate in OOCMT-related tournaments. To learn more about the OOCMT, please visit the program page on our website: http://ojen.ca/en/oocmt.
