The fifth annual David F Jackson Mooting Dinner celebrated the many accomplishments and hard work of students who have competed in mooting and legal skills competitions in 2016. The event, held on Monday 21 November at The Women’s College, also acknowledged the tremendous support of the school’s coaches and team sponsors, including the International Aerospace Law and Policy Group and the Chartered Arbitrators Institute of Australia.

Professor Sarah Derrington, Dean of Law and Ms Geneviève Murray, director of Mooting, hosted the evening with the after dinner address given by Ms Sue Brown QC, alumna and barrister, who delivered an engaging homage to Mr David F Jackson AM QC.
