QUT team performs well in Oxford IP moot

QUT moot team members Ben Quick and Sophie O'Regan.

QUT has confirmed its place among the mooting world’s best at the Oxford International Intellectual Property Moot held from 15 to 18 March.

The moot focused on copyright and moral rights in motion pictures as films and dramatic works. 

Under the guidance of moot coach Associate Professor Lucy Cradduck, QUT’s team performed well in both written and oral rounds. 

Sophie O’Regan took the lead for QUT’s written work. Sophie, with fellow oralist Ben Quick and researcher Yea Won (Annie) Jung, ranked equal fourth for their written submissions. It is based on these written submissions that teams are invited to the oral rounds. 

Sophie and Ben made the quarter finals, where they narrowly lost to ultimate winner Ottawa, which faced another Australian team, from Monash University, in the final. In individual awards, Ben was ranked equal fourth best oralist in the preliminary rounds of four moots. Sophie appeared in QLS Proctor last year as a member of another successful QUT team.

Ben, Sophie, and Lucy at Welcome to Moot, held in the St Peter’s College Chapel.

  1. Takes me back. I participated in the very first moot held at the then QIT school of law in 1977. The moot was part of the torts assessment. The first ‘real judge’ was Dormer Andrews J of the Supreme Court.
    Congratulations to the current QUT mooting reps who did very well on the international stage.
