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.
