INTERNATIONAL TECH SUCCESS FOR BOND LAW

INTERNATIONAL TECH SUCCESS FOR BOND LAW

Bond University is set to host one of the world’s most technologically advanced legal competitions following the success of a virtual mooting contest held earlier this year.


Cutting-edge technology allowed students from Bond to compete in a bilingual sports law court mooting scenario with students from the prestigious ‘Unversite Paris 13’ in France.


Although the Bond team was narrowly defeated, Bond Professor of Law Jim Corkery says the inaugural competition itself was a great triumph and universities from the United States, Vietnam, Japan and Malaysia have already indicated eagerness to participate in the event next year.


“The availability of this technology has opened a whole new range of opportunities for students,” says Professor Corkery.


“We look forward to an even more competitive event next year, with leading universities from around the world already expressing their interest in taking part.”


The mock-court scenario was held in the Global Links Room, the newest facility addition to the $1.4 million Balnaves Foundation Multimedia Learning Centre.


According to Professor Corkery this new form of electronic mooting is allowing students to gain more experience than ever before and is an excellent preparatory tool for a budding legal career.


“Traditionally the time and cost involved with international moots, where teams travel to a single overseas location for a face-to-face debate, has been prohibitive and often limited participation, technology is changing all that,” says Professor Corkery.


“Global Law firms are demanding their employees have this kind of international experience and skill set, and we are now in a position to better equip our students to meet those demands.”


Next year’s competition is expected to take place during the September trimester.
