Bond Wins International Mooting Competition

A team of Bond University Law students are now world champions, having defeated Yale University and Utrecht University in the grand final of the prestigious International Criminal Court (ICC) Trail competition in The Hague on 20 February 2009.

20 Teams from 14 countries competed in the ICC Trial competition this year, including the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Russia, India, China, the Netherlands, South Africa and Canada. Each Team consisted of five members, including two researchers and three acting for the prosecution, defence and victims.

Kate Mitchell won the award for 'Best Oralist' and Kristen Zornada was named 'Best Victims' Counsel.
