Dear friends!

Happy September! Before discussing my new projects with the Ontario Justice Education Network, I would like to say a word about our flagship project of the past school year: the first 100% French Charter Challenge!

As you know, the project was a tremendous success. 391 students representing 28 schools from across the province participated. 76 completed the project and submitted a factum, the state of the art brief that is used at the Ontario Court of Appeal.

You can find more information about the program here:

The finalists were Camille Gilbert from Renaissance School in Aurora and Conrad B. Piché from Saint Charles Garnier School in Whitby.

The final was judged by Justice Thorburn of the Ontario Court of Appeal, Taylor Wormington, Clerk at the Ontario Court of Appeal and Sarah Gagnon, Clerk at the Ottawa Superior Court of Justice.

The panel said they were “very, very impressed” with the finalists. Madam Justice Thorburn said it was "rare that we have such strong litigants". The judges placed particular emphasis on the oral skills of the two finalists, on the excellence of the organization of the briefs, on the relevance of the examples used and on the creativity of the argumentation.

Madam Justice Thorburn said she has tried a number of mock trials over the past 15 years, in English or French, in person or by teleconference, and this was unequivocally one of the best.

In addition, you can read the blog posts in which our finalists described how they lived this experience:

Stay tuned!

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
