Georgina wins international mooting contest - 30 April 2015

Congratulations to LHC past pupil and 2010 College Captain, Georgina Morgan, who was part of the winning team at the 6th Annual International Air Law Moot in Beijing.

The moot, hosted by Leiden University and the Sarin Legal Memorial Foundation, took place from 9 to 12 April and attracted 23 teams from around the world, including Nepal, India, China, Poland and the USA. Georgina’s all-female team, representing the University of Queensland, was the only team from Australia.

During four rounds of moots over two days, Georgina and her team appeared as both the applicant and the respondent in a mock air law case. After being named the top applicant team, as well as the second-placed respondent team, Georgina’s team progressed to the grand final against a team from the National University of Judicial Sciences, India.

Georgina said that her team was honoured to be announced as the winners of the grand final.

 “The competition was such a great experience,” she said.

“We all greatly improved our written and oral advocacy skills and loved being able to meet so many different people at the competition.

“We are very grateful to all those who helped organise and run the competition. It was fantastic!” 

Georgina added that her time at Lourdes Hill College had prepared her for continued academic success.

“During my time at LHC, I worked with many different teams, on a wide range of projects, and throughout this, I learnt the value of cooperation and the importance of giving 100%, she said.

“These lessons, and more, prepared me for working in teams like my moot team, and I am always grateful for the support LHC provided.”

Georgina, who will graduate from her law degree in 2016, is now interested in pursuing a career specialising in air law.
