The OJEN/LFO Mock Trial Fund


The Mock Trial Fund was established in 2008 by the OJEN and the Law Foundation of Ontario (LFO) to provide financial support to high school mock trial programs across Ontario.  Each year, $15,000 is available to be granted across the province. OJEN also develops and updates mock trial case scenarios and supporting materials, and OJEN staff are available to provide advice and guidance on starting and running a mock trial program.

Organizers of mock trial programs of different types may apply for a grant from the Mock Trial Fund. There are some minimum criteria, and each grant will be assessed on a case-by-case basis in line with the criteria and guidelines outlined in the application guide.
