The University of Queensland represented Australia in the international air law moot competition held in Beijing between April 9 – 12. Law students Georgina Morgan, Amina Karcic and Ella Rooney represented Australia in the competition. There were two days of semi-final rounds, in which the team competed against teams from China, Poland and Sri Lanka. The moot problem concerned unruly passengers and raised questions of international law to be decided before the International Court of Justice.
The UQ Law team competed against the National University of Judicial Sciences, India, in the Grand Final and was announced as overall competition winners.
“Mooting before aviation experts was a privilege and a great experience for the students,” said Director of Mooting Associate Professor Peter Billings.
The team was coached by Joe Wheeler from Shine Lawyers and was supported by many members of academic staff, alumni and current 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,” Associate Professor Billings said.
In the past year, UQ Law School 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 among other competition titles.
