2016 Mooting Competition winners

Each year the Law School invites Year 11 Legal Studies students to participate in the Mooting Competition. The School is committed to supporting first in family communities close to the Bundoora and Bendigo campuses. Invitations are forwarded to the University's partner schools and other neighbouring schools which have a similar demographic.

This year, general rounds were held at the new Moot Court at La Trobe University, Bundoora Campus and the finals were held at the Federal Court in Melbourne.

Workshops prior to the competition assisted teachers and students to familiarise themselves with the moot problem, legal research techniques, legislation and cases.

The general rounds of the moot competition were judged by current La Trobe University law students; the semi-finals by Law School academics, and the final by barrister and Victorian of the Year Julian McMahon, Head of the Law School Professor Patrick Keyzer and barrister Karen Argiropoulos.

All judges and attendees were impressed by the quality of the teams and wish to congratulate all schools that participated.

Congratulations to this year's winners:
