Jessup Team Success

This year’s Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition took place at The Australian National University (ANU) College of Law in Canberra on 3rd February 2010. The competition showcases the country's best students from 16 Australian Universities and their understanding of international law and the skill of persuasion. Students presented their oral and written arguments on a hypothetical international law case. This year’s topic was “the right to self-determination and the lawfulness of measures taken to protect the economic resources of a state”.

Bond Law’s team consisting of Katherine Mansted, Tom Harrison, Henry Norris and James Graham (coached by Joel Butler and Kate Allan) made it through to the final four where they were narrowly defeated by the University of Western Australia (who went on to win the competition). Our team performed outstandingly being awarded prizes for Best Applicant Memorial and Best Overall Memorial (which means their memorials, if not the team, will be competing for memorial prizes in Washington DC in month), and Katherine Mansted received the award for fourth best oralist in the competition.
