USQ Secondary Schools Moot Competition

Hosted by the School of Law and Justice and established for schools in the Darling Downs, Lockyer, Ipswich and Springfield regions, this free competition broadens the knowledge and experience of law for Year 11 and 12 secondary students.

Through close analysis and argument of a legal problem, competitors will gain valuable and fun practical experience in a law court environment and a better understanding of how the law functions. In fact students who moot at USQ Springfield will have the opportunity to use authentic, turn of the century court room furniture previously used in Ipswich District Courtrooms – generously donated by the Ipswich and District Law Association.
