The verdict is in: A case of victory for Hillbrook Anglican School

And they ruled the roost!
A team of aspiring legal eagles from Hillbrook Anglican School reigned supreme against The Glennie School in the 2021 University of Southern Queensland Secondary Schools Moot Competition Grand Final.

Coordinated by the University of Southern Queensland’s School of Law and Justice and established for schools in the Darling Downs, Lockyer, Ipswich and Springfield regions, the competition broadened the knowledge and experience of law for Year 11 and 12 students.

This year’s competition saw 25 teams from 16 schools participate to contend for victory before honourable judicial panels.

The Grand Final was overseen by an illustrious panel including District Court Judge Alexander Horneman-Wren SC (who attended with his associate, Maddie McEniery), David Jones (Barrister) and Professor Simon Young (Law Professor).

University of Southern Queensland’s School of Law and Justice Professor Simon Young congratulated the teams on their achievement which showcased the depth of their knowledge about simulated court proceedings and a broad range of legal skills.
