Criminal Law Mock Trial Scenario: R. v. Tisi

A 16-year old has been charged with assault causing bodily harm and robbery, charges stemming from an attack on a 15 year-old student and the theft of the younger student’s basketball shoes. Four witnesses, including the victim, accused and arresting officer, have provided evidence.

Appropriate for a non-academic event or academically-focused exercise, this scenario is also a good starting point for discussion about the psychological impact of crime and the effect of violence on victims. This mock trial activity could be developed over a week, with time for small group preparation for students taking on the roles of counsel, witnesses and court staff.
