The OBA/OJEN Competitive Mock Trials for High School Students
The OBA/OJEN Competitive Mock Trials (OOCMT) is a partnership between the Ontario Bar Association (OBA) and the Ontario Justice Education Network (OJEN), and the OBA Foundation. Most competitive mock trial tournaments in the province are part of OOCMT, which means they use the official OOCMT case and rules, and their winners may participate in upper-level competitions organized by the OBA and OJEN.
On this site, you will find information about the tournament in your local area, the official materials for this year’s program, archived cases from previous years, and resources to help you prepare to participate in a tournament.

Case and Materials
The 2024 case scenario is R v Lavel. To find other tournament materials such as the list of exhibits, legal guidance, and official rules, go to the Core Materials page underneath the Tournament Materials drop down list.
Every year, we produce a new case scenario, which will be used for all tournaments. The case comes out first in a draft form, with a period afterwards for prospective participants to submit questions which may require clarification, or any errors noticed. The final version is usually published about two weeks after the first draft. It is very rare for any major changes to be made to the case in the final version.
Check out the OOCMT archives for cases from previous years.
