Bond law students take out another international moot accolade

Bond University has added to its impressive track record in international mooting competitions by taking out the prestigious Beijing Foreign Studies University Intellectual Property Law Moot.

The win adds to a remarkable string of moot competition victories over the past three years, further enhancing Bond University's reputation as one of Australia’s leading Law Schools.

In 2011, Bond Law students won three major awards in the space of two months, and followed this in 2012 with a win in the D.M. Harish Memorial Government Law College International Moot Court Competition, and two local moot wins in Queensland and Victoria

The two students – Marryum Kahloon and Caroline Karlsson – have just arrived back in Australia from Beijing with their winner's plaque.

The team coach and Director of Mooting, Assistant Professor Joel Butler also went to Beijing with the students.

He said this win, on top of the University's track record, demonstrated that Bond was extremely competitive, mooting at the highest international levels.

"Mooting, which simulates courtroom conditions in the presentation of a legal argument, is a stern test of students' advocacy skills in national and international competitions," said Mr Butler.

"It involves a lot of hard work and effort, and the results are testimony to the commitment that the students have brought to this demanding discipline.

"It helps to instil confidence, discipline and team work, and provides the students with a wealth of experience in courtroom conditions."

Mr Butler said the outcomes of recent national and international mooting competitions also showed one of the benefits of a Bond University degree.

"Bond University encourages and assists students to participate and meets the costs of taking part in such mooting competitions," he said.
