Monash Law students excel at Oxford Moot
The Monash Law School student mooting team has made their mark on the international stage, claiming a variety of awards at the 2015 Oxford International Intellectual Property Law Moot in England last month.
Competing at the moot for the first time, the Monash Law team gave a memorable performance reaching the competition Grand Final, along with the National University of Bangalore (India).
On the way to the final, the three-strong team became competition favourites as they triumphed over highly regarded institutions such as the University of Cambridge and King’s College London.
Universities from around the world descended on Oxford for the 13th edition of the competition, including teams from universities in United Kingdom, USA, India, Singapore, Canada and Germany.
All three Monash Law students excelled over the three days of competition, with James Beavis winning best speaker and Tim Rankin named second-best speaker.
In a high-quality final it was the National University of Bangalore who would emerge victorious, but it was Monash’s own Gisela Nip who many considered the standout speaker.
Monash Law School academics Professor Mark Davison, Dr Rebecca Giblin and Dr Patrick Emerton all assisted the team to prepare for the annual event.
