2021 Adelaide Law School: High School Mooting Competition
On Thursday 10 June 2021, the Adelaide Law School was once again excited to be hosting the High School Mooting Competition, after the event was cancelled in 2020.
Organised by Dr Stacey Henderson, the event was well-attended by local schools vying for the the title of Mooting champions, as well as taking home some really cool prizes. With eight schools registered in the competition, a number of whom were first-time entrants, participants argued a contract law appeal before a panel of judges.
The schools taking part in the 2021 competition were:
The Piper Alderman Moot Court in Ligertwood was buzzing with enthusiasm. The oral and written advocacy demonstrated throughout the competition was of an exceptional standard. Thank you to Professor Melissa de Zwart, Joel Lisk and Michaela Okninski for judging the competition.
Our congratulations go to each and every student who participated – and, of course, to their incredibly supportive teachers!
Congratulations to the team from Immanuel College who took first place, taking home the shield and $1,500 in prize money.
