Lara Sveinsson and Marty Campbell qualified for the international competition after winning the national moot run by the Australian Red Cross and the Australian Law Students’ Association. It was the first time that a Bond University team has competed in the IHL moot. The pair faced university teams from countries that included Iran, New Zealand, Mongolia, China and Nepal, and argued their case in front of International Red Cross legal advisors, barristers and judges from around the world. The final round of the four-day competition was held in Hong Kong’s High Court, before a bench of five judges that included judges from the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal and a former judge of the International Court of Justice. Lara and Marty have been awarded a joint scholarship which they will use to travel to Geneva to undertake an IHL-related program at the International Committee of the Red Cross headquarters. The Law Revue will return this month for a two-night run. Presented by Queensland Young Lawyers, the revue will be held on 18 and 19 May at the Brisbane Multicultural Arts Centre on level one of the Queensland Multicultural Centre, 102 Main Street, Kangaroo Point.
