Bond law students place third at The Hague

A team of Bond University students have placed third in the international rounds of the International Criminal Court (ICC) Trial Competition out of 37 teams from 27 countries around the globe.

The annual event is held at The Hague in the Netherlands after qualifying rounds nationally. After months of hard work, research and preparation, Law students Amelia Richardson, Lucy Hopkinson, Rupert Holder, Amy Reid and Nick Coundouris finished closely behind the Netherland’s Leiden University who took out First Place and Canada’s Osgoode Hall Law School.

The Bond University Mooting Team found the entire experience positive and getting to moot in the ICC courtroom in front of an ICC judge was a highlight.

Coach Assistant Professor Jodie O’Leary added, ‘I am immensely proud of the team. Having had the pleasure of watching them in action, I have no doubt they will excel in their future careers’.

Director of Mooting, Joel Butler also described, ‘This year’s ICC team's work was outstanding. A number of guest judges commented that they were among teams where 'no criticism could be levelled' in their final moots’.

The students are now enjoying a well-earned break and are continuing their travels around Europe.
