Bond's Champion Moot Team defends title at The Hague!

Bond University this week sent its finest mooters over to defend their championship title in the International Criminal Court (ICC) Trial Competition in The Hague in the Netherlands, the legal capital of the world.

Bond University’s team of law students who hold the title of World Champions, defeated Yale and Utrecht University in the Grand Final of this prestigious competition last year and hold every hope of repeating their success.

The Bond Law team, consisting of Daniel Ryan, Hannah Maher, Ashleigh Light, Sara Bond, Rowan Kendall and coach Joe Crowley, will be one of 20 teams from 14 different countries including the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Russia, India, China, the Netherlands, South Africa and Canada.

The team arrived in the Netherlands to freezing conditions and have already commenced their preparation for their first round where they will meet Tsinghua University from Beijing and the University of Miami.

“I’m confident our team will perform outstandingly," said Dean of Law Professor Geraldine Mackenzie.

They are well prepared and have practised day and night to perfect their approach. We have always placed a strong emphasis on ‘practising law’ and there is no better way than for them to practise through mooting, said Professor Mackenzie.”

The competition will run for the next two weeks – everyone here at Bond wishes them every success!
