Twenty young people between the ages of 12 and 16 have been learning more about the legal system as part of a special Youth Justice Camp that took place in the capital city.
The camp, offered by the Public Legal Information Association and funded in part by the Department of Justice, offers young people a chance to learn about the inner workings of the provincial and Supreme court systems.
Three days of events wrapped up this afternoon with a mock trial at Supreme Court.
13-year-old Rachel Moss of Portugal Cove-St. Phillips who played the role of Crown Attorney, outlined the case.
She says they’re trying the case of a 16-year-old boy accused of stealing an ipod from a local store.
