Pre-Law Competitions 2015

Are you an undergraduate student interested in law? Do you have a hankering for public speaking? Do you spend your nights hopelessly wishing you were Denny Crane from Boston Legal grilling people in the courtroom? Well read on because you’re in luck!

There are several competitions being run this year by Blackstone for any undergraduate student interested in law.

SEMESTER ONE:

Negotiation Competition 

“Hey everyone! The 2015 Blackstone Pre-Law Negotiation Competition will be running next week!  The preliminary rounds will be running on the 21st and 22nd of April with the final taking place on the 27th. Signups are now OPEN so you can register using the link below:

We also understand that many of you may be new to the idea of a negotiation competition so check out this video published by the University of Technology (Sydney) about negotiations and feel free to contact the competition coordinator, Miguel at seniorbusinesslaw@blackstone.asn.au

How to get involved: 
Keep checking the facebook page ‘UWA Pre-Law students’ for when to enter and when rounds will be held.
We will also have plenty of resources on how to do negotiation competitions if this is your first time!

 

SEMESTER TWO:

Mooting Competition:
Teams of two will be given a case and argue based on a point or points of law. It is is the oral presentation of a legal issue or problem against an opposing counsel and before a judge. It is perhaps the closest experience that a student can have whilst at university to appearing in court.

This year Blackstone will run two competitions alongside for the Mooting Competition. A first year Moot and a Pre-Law Moot. This will allow students aspiring to the JD to practice Moot at a higher level, and for the first years to be able to compete past the first round.
