Congratulations to the 2021 Grand Finalist teams, Hillbrook Anglican School (winning team) and The Glennie School (runners-up). Invitations for the 2022 competition will be forwarded in early 2021.

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 Ipswich 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.
