Vice President: Competitions
As your VP of Competitions in 2023, I aim to increase UON law students’ presence within external competitions, and look forward to offering students an array of internal opportunities to foster practical skills outside the classroom – to gain confidence in the courtroom!
If you have any questions or concerns, our competitions team is always happy to have a chat, email me via firstname.lastname@example.org.
My name is Shania Fenton, and I’m in my final year of a Bachelor of Laws (Honours).
During semester one, the Competitions Portfolio is offering the UNLSA’s inaugural Negotiation competition exclusive to first-year students. Our team and I will also be organising a general Negotiation Competition open to all years, as well as Senior Mooting, Witness Examination and Paper Presentation. In semester two, we will be convening Junior Mooting and Client Interviewing. The UNLSA offers an array of competitions for everyone – whether you’re a great negotiator at home or a budding barrister!
In addition, we also have a number of intervarsity competitions on offer and external competitions may even be held interstate or overseas! Make sure to keep an eye out on our social media pages for opportunities to compete in prestigious national/global moots or skills competitions.
