Kcasey McLoughlin of the Newcastle Law School has led students to success at the KWM Private Law Moot


A team of Newcastle Law School students led by academic Kcasey McLoughlin had a very successful weekend at the King and Wood Mallesons Private Law Moot 2014.

The students (Jessie McKenzie, Alex Winn, Michael Youlden, and Susan Ellicott) made it all the way to the grand final where they emerged victorious.

The moot concerned the law in relation to trustees' obligations and fiduciary duties. The team "broke" into the final rounds ranked first off the back of a very strong performance in the preliminary set rounds. After winning the semi-final they progressed to the Grand Final in the Supreme Court of NSW. In the final the students appeared before Professor Simone Degeling, Justice of the Supreme Court of Appeal, Mark Leeming, and former President of the Court of Appeal, Keith Mason QC, to defeat the UTS team.

The judges were very impressed by the students' proficiency and professionalism.
