St. Benedict student wins Best Crown Advocate

Declan McCann took the ward for Best Crown Advocate at this year's annual annual City Mock Trial.

May 22, 2018 - Last week, St. Benedict’s students took part in the annual City Mock Trial and one of the students walked away with the award for Best Crown Advocate.

Declan McCann, who is only in grade 11 this year took the award in the mock trial case of R V Rogers which was a manslaughter case.

The mock trial has become a yearly event whereby a case is presented to the students and the schools face off against each other.

McCann, says “so much time was spent doing research into this trial and he now understands the process of what a lawyer does daily.” He says that he spent two months working on this particular case and in total spent sixty hours. That hard work did pay off in dividends.

McCann says he is considering taking on next year’s trial.
