This competition is now open for external applications.

Unjust enrichment is a unifying legal concept which explains why the law recognises, in a variety of distinct categories of case, an obligation on the part of a defendant to make fair and just restitution for a benefit derived at the expense of a plaintiff. As such, it is expected that this moot will be of particular interest to those students who enjoyed studying the Law of Contract and Trusts and Equity. 

The University of Queensland Law Society (UQLS) hosts the UQ Unjust Enrichment Moot.

This year the competition will run from Sunday, 22 September - Wednesday, 25 September. The Grand Final bench will comprise of the Honourable Justice James Edelman (High Court of Australia), the Honourable Justice Roger Derrington (Federal Court of Australia), and Professor Kit Barker (UQ Law School). 

All rounds other than the Grand Final will be held at the UQ School of Law, with the Grand Final hosted at the Federal Court of Australia.
