Interstate students enjoy a unique law experience

On Tuesday, 24 September, 41 Year 11 and 12 high school students from New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory and Victoria flew up to Bond University for a unique campus experience with a special emphasis on law.

Students who had participated in previous High School Mooting Competitions or had indicated an interest in studying law specifically were invited to register for a $90 ticket which included:

  • Return airfares
  • Transfers to and from the campus
  • Lunch and light refreshments
  • Interactive sessions with the Law faculty staff and students
  • Campus Tour
  • Information pack, including notepad and pen
  • Travel fully escorted by three Bond University Managers for School and Community

After the first 30 tickets (15 from each region) were exhausted within days due to demand, an additional 11 were offered and snapped up almost immediately.

When asked what they wanted to get out of the event, the top two student responses were “I wanted to find out more about studying law at Bond University” and “I wanted to hear the experiences of students who are currently studying law at Bond University”.

By the end of the day the students happily agreed the experience was worth it, as they enjoyed the opportunity to meet and talk with law academics and current students, watched a live mooting demonstration, and were part of interactive presentations.

The Year 11 and 12’s also went on a full campus tour with current law students to check out the facilities including on campus accommodation blocks, gym, library, cafes, lecture theatres, case study rooms, student moot rooms, negotiation rooms and the state of the art multi-million dollar Moot Court where the day’s sessions were held.

Victorian Manager for School and Community, Jennifer Graham added, “Everything ran completely seamlessly and the students had some wonderful feedback on the flight home. Several non-scholarship year 12 students mentioned they would start applications in the next week I would say it was our best Experience Day to date and so much was taken from the day”.

This was the first time a Faculty specific Interstate Experience Day program was offered by Bond University, and plans are in place to turn it into an annual event.
