Bond University Law School has recently won two of the world’s most prestigious legal mooting competitions, defeating challengers from some of the world’s top universities.
A group of four Bond University Bachelor of Laws students has triumphed at the renowned International Criminal Court (ICC) Trial Competition in The Hague, adding to last week’s Willem C. Vis (East) International Commercial Arbitration Moot win in Hong Kong.
The ICC Trial Competition takes place annually at one of the world’s top centres of justice – The Hague, providing students with the opportunity to showcase their international criminal law knowledge. This year, the Bond University Law School team again triumphed against competitors including Yale University, Leiden University and William and Mary Law School, winning the final against teams from India’s NALSAR University of Law and Canada’s Osgoode Hall Law School.
Students Cale Davis, Tegan Little, Gabrielle Morriss and Susan Forder walked away with not only the Championship but were also recognised as ‘Best Prosecution’, while Susan Forder was named ‘Best Victim’s Counsel’. The team excelled under the guidance of academic advisors, Assistant Professor Jodie O’Leary and Senior Teaching Fellow Joe Crowley.
