UNSW Law Society

Competitors will participate in a round robin of three preliminary rounds, followed by the quarter-final, semi-final and the grand final. The Grand Final will be hosted at the High Court in Melbourne before a panel of three judges including The Honourable William Gummow and the Honourable Susan Crennan.

UNSW Law Society will select one team of three members to compete.

Prior knowledge: knowledge of federal constitutional law is highly recommended but not required – competitors who have not completed federal constitutional law will have approximately one month over the mid-year break, before the release of the problem question, to learn the basics. Applicants who have not completed federal constitutional law should demonstrate a commitment to independently learning the basics of the course during the mid-year break in their application.

- LawSoc will pay the registration fee
- LawSoc will subsidise flights at up to $150.00 per person
- Competitors must pay for accommodation
