Congratulations to final year Economic and Social Sciences/Law student, Angus Abadee on winning the Sir Harry Gibbs National Constitutional Law Moot.

The competition runs over a week and includes three preliminary rounds, quarter finals, semi finals then the grand final.

"While teams usually consist of two speakers and a solicitor, due to the rest of our team having to pull out Angus ended up writing all submissions and presenting them himself through the tournament," said SULS Competition Director,Jacob Offen.

"It was simply a herculean effort and an amazing feat."

Chief Justice Robert French presided over the Grand Final held at the High Court.
