Australian students win international moot

Melbourne Law School has won the 2011 European Law Students' Association Moot Court Competition for the third time, defeating students of National Taiwan University in Geneva.

Melbourne Law School has won the 2011 European Law Students' Association Moot Court Competition for the third time, defeating students of National Taiwan University in Geneva.

Melbourne Law School law students Rebecca Koh, Daniel Ari Baker, Philip Aitken and Glyn Ayres, who have claimed victory at the 2011 European Law Students' Association Moot Court Competition in Geneva.
The winning team, comprising Rebecca Koh, Daniel Ari Baker, Philip Aitken and Glyn Ayres, travelled to Europe to compete in the final rounds of the global competition after winning the Asia-Pacific Regional Round in Taipei earlier this year.

Law students from around the world took part in the competition, which involved a simulated panel hearing within the World Trade Organisation (WTO) dispute settlement system.

In the preliminary and quarter final rounds held in France this month, Melbourne Law School defeated teams from Lithuania, Maastricht University (the Netherlands) and the London School of Economics and Political Science.

"All at Melbourne Law School are thrilled by our team's performance," said the Melbourne Law School dean, professor Carolyn Evans. "This win is great recognition for the huge amount of work that the team has put in."

The grand final took place at the WTO in Geneva before a distinguished panel of nine judges including WTO deputy director-general Alejandro Jara, WTO appellate body member professor Peter Van Den Bossche and WTO counsellor from the legal affairs division professor Gabrielle Marceau.
