Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be in a court of law? What is the role of the prosecution? What is the role of the defense? The remaining six YLC contestants had to find answers to these questions in this week’s episode where they argue opposing sides of a case on human trafficking.

The competition was filmed in a real courtroom and YLC Season 5 winner, Ms. Sophal Yun served as the judge for the case. The teams were scored based on their ability to follow proper judicial protocols in their questions, responses and evaluations of evidence by a panel of distinguished law students. The winning team met with the Minister of Justice Ang Vong Vathana, as well as the Charge D’Affairs of the United States Embassy in Cambodia Ted Allegra. This week, the losing team sent only one teammate home.
