University of Queensland took out the winning title at the Shine Lawyers Torts Moot Competition, held in early August at QUT.

Eight teams from JCU, UQ, QUT, Bond, UTS, UNSW, ANU and University of Sydney competed in the 7th Shine Lawyers Torts Moot Competition.

Each team completed a demanding four rounds of mooting. Danielle Tay from UQ won Best Mooter in the Final, and Duncan McKay from UTS won Best Mooter in the qualifying rounds.

The problem involved a consideration of the meaning of dangerous recreational activity, as well as the operation of an exclusion clause.

The competition was fierce, with five teams finishing the rounds on three wins: UQ, QUT, UTS, UNSW and Bond. In the semi-finals, UQ defeated UNSW and QUT defeated UTS.

The early rounds of the competition were judged by Justice Debra Mullins, Justice Roslyn Atkinson and Justice John Logan.

The final was held in the Banco Court before an esteemed bench of Justice George Fryberg, Judge David Searles and Mr Richard Jones of the Land Court.

- Reported by Jennifer Yule, Moot Coordinator,QUT Faculty of Law
