Law students enjoying New Delhi during the competition
ECU Law students returned late last year from the 2010 LAWASIA International Moot Competition in New Delhi with a pleasing result.
Thirteen law schools from all over the world participated in the moot competition, which posed a problem concerning international law and intellectual property law. The teams were judged by a panel of distinguished international legal experts.
The ECU team faced fierce competition from universities such as the Chinese University of Hong Kong and BPP Law School UK, but through their hard work and significant preparation they successfully made it into the semi-finals. They were narrowly beaten by New Delhi University for a place in the finals.
The team was supervised by Senior Lecturer Mr Michael Crowley, who provided invaluable advice, coaching and support to the students.
‘Mooting is an important part of legal education as it provides students with the opportunity to put their skills and training into practice. By involving our students in such competitions as Law Asia, we hope to provide these prospective lawyers with the necessary skills for the real world,’ Mr Crowley said.
To become involved in competitions within the School of Law and Justice, please contact Mr Michael Crowley.
