Bond University students have triumphed again in the international arena, this time in India.
Law Students Sara Trainor and Indhia Duncan won the D.M. Harish Memorial Government Law College International Moot Court Competition, India's largest and most prestigious mooting competition.
Ms Trainor was also awarded Best Advocate of the competition.
The team was supported by fellow student Chantal McNaught who participated in a researcher’s test, and were coached by fellow student Tsjatsja Westerveld.
The girls travelled to Bombay for the competition and were met with competitiors from United Kingdom, United States of America, Sri Lanka, Nepal Bangladesh, Mauritius, Spain, Greece, Russia, Malaysia, Ireland, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Singapore, Jamaica, Australia & Pakistan.
This victory marks the fourth mooting competition win for Bond University’s Faculty of Law in the past year.
Faculty of Law Dean Professor Geraldine Mackenzie said Competing globally gives students the chance to develop a network of global law contacts.
“To win four international legal competitions of such high standing within twelve months is an incredible feat that cements our place as one of the world’s top mooting Law Schools,” she said.
“As well as giving them valuable hands-on experience in various specialised areas of law, mooting nurtures their research and oral presentation skills and helps to build confidence.
