The Governor-General, Ms Quentin Bryce AC, officially opened the extension to the Legal Skills Centre at Bond University recently.
The $8.4 million extension forms part of the Legal Skills Centre, the first of its kind to integrate the full complement of legal-based training facilities, with purpose built suites designed for mediation, dispute resolution and Professional Legal Training.
Bond University Vice-Chancellor Professor Robert Stable said the extension meant more students will be able to put the first-class facilities to use.
“The centre houses a full-scale electronic moot court, offering state-of-the-art courtroom setting which is equipped with evidence management systems, video conferencing facilities and video streaming that replicated the very latest technology used in the High Court of Australia,” said Professor Stable.
The extension also houses the Psychology Clinic as well as teaching spaces utilised by Bond University English Language Institute and Bond College.
Bond University’s Faculty of Law boasts a world-class curriculum that incorporates the only fully integrated, incremental Legal Skills Program of its kind in Australia. Its success depends upon the personalised learning environment that provides opportunity for each student to make the most of their individual potential.
