UQ MOOTING TEAM WINS BIG IN BEIJING

THE University of Queensland mooting team has taken out another international title, winning the 6th International Air Law Moot Court Competition, held in Beijing.

UQ law students Georgina Morgan, Amina Karcic and Ella Rooney (picutred) represented Australia in the competition, which ran from 9-12 April.

Director of Mooting Associate Professor Peter Billings says the team competed against teams from China, Poland and Sri Lanka during two days of semi-final rounds.

"The moot problem concerned unruly passengers and raised questions of international law to be decided before the International Court of Justice," he says.

The UQ team competed against India's National University of Judicial Sciences in the grand final before being announced as overall competition winners.

"Mooting before aviation experts was a privilege and a great experience for the students," Billings says.

Joe Wheeler from Shine Lawyers coached the team, with support from many members of academic staff, alumni and students at UQ's TC Beirne School of Law.

"The students represented the law school with distinction and continued UQ's fine tradition and record of success in mooting competitions nationally and internationally," Billings says.

In the past year, UQ mooting teams have won the Administrative Appeals Tribunal National Mooting Competition, and the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition in Washington DC, USA.
