Shine Lawyers Torts Moot Victory

The Shine Lawyers Torts Moot, sponsored by leading Brisbane law firm Shine Lawyers, is held annually at the QUT Law School in August. This year’s competition took place on 2-6 August with twelve schools competing for the coveted title.

The Bond team, consisting of students Meera Siva-Nathan, Gabrielle Morriss, Iris He and Lucy Hopkinson, were coached by previous Shine mooter and current President of the Law Students’ Association, Rowan Kendall.

Senior Teaching Fellow Joel Butler also supported the team through his role as academic advisor, guiding the students throughout the preparation of their submissions and assisting with advocacy.

After completing four preliminary rounds, the Bond team qualified for the semi-finals against first-ranked team, UTS.

After defeating UTS in the semi-finals, the respondent team of Gabrielle and Meera met the University of Sydney in the Banco Court of the Supreme Court of Queensland. The bench for the finals, presided over by Justice George Fryberg, awarded the win to Bond in a unanimous decision. Gabrielle Morriss was also awarded the prize for best advocate in the final round.

Congratulations to the team for all their hard work in securing the winning title!
