Last night, six outstanding students from schools around Canberra competed for the honour of being awarded the Snedden Hall & Gallop University Scholarship for law 2017.
The Year 12 students presented in the Moot Court of the University of Canberra. Dr Lorana Bartells, Head of the School of Law and Justice welcomed the students. Gerald Santucci, Director at Snedden Hall & Gallop, was the MC for the occasion. The presentations were judged by Dr Alison McLennan (Assistant Professor, School of Law & Justice, University of Canberra), Murray Rankin (Chairman, Snedden Hall & Gallop Lawyers) and Suzanne Sharwood (Senior Associate, Snedden Hall & Gallop Lawyers). The judges noted that they were struck by the high standard set by all the students. Please see below for photos.
The seven minutes presentations included a wide range of topics such as: “Should we have video surveillance in all public places?” and “Do electronic cigarettes present a new regulations problem in Australia?”
The next stage for these students is to conduct an informal interview with judges next Wednesday – best of luck to you all!
Thank you to University of Canberra
