School and teacher financial and learning support
Bond University has committed significant financial and learning support to schools and teachers/coaches to make the National High School Mooting Competition a learning experience without parallel.
Bond University will fund air travel for interstate and intrastate teams, for students and teachers/coaches (4 people per team), and accommodation expenses for WA, SA and NT schools. Schools from Victoria, Tasmania, NSW, ACT and Central/North Queensland will fly to the Gold Coast and return home the same day. Transfers from Gold Coast Airport to the campus, and return, are included. Food and refreshments whilst on campus will be provided. Parents and supporters of students are welcome to attend, and are encouraged to offer their support, however airfare cost for family and supporters is not part of the funding package.
Whilst on campus, outside of their mooting commitments, students and teachers will be hosted by Student Ambassadors who will conduct campus tours and answer questions about law school and being a law student.
Teachers (mooting coaches) will be offered a free day of professional development support via our Mooting Coach Masterclass. Experienced legal professionals, both lawyers and academics, will coach a single teacher from each school (in a maximum cohort size of 40 with break out groups) in mooting protocols, moot coaching, court procedure and case development. Bond University will cover the accommodation, food and training costs with schools to bear the travel costs.
