Part 4 End Game

Final Arguments

Once you have completed your defence, both you and the prosecution will be called upon to produce final arguments. The best arguments are brief and to the point:

  • They should mention the facts that support your story.
  • Emphasize inconsistency in the Crown's case.
  • Include reasons why your evidence is more compelling than the Crown's.
  • End by stating that the charge has not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt and you should be acquitted.


The justice will then sum up the evidence and explain her decision. You should stand when receiving the court's judgement and show no emotion.
