A balanced legal education exposes students to at least three elements: substantive legal principles, academic legal scholarship and practical legal skills. While each of these elements is central to all of Blackstone’s competitions, there is a particular emphasis on providing a forum for students to develop practical expertise.

Applications for the various competitions open at different times. Check out each of the specific competitions in the relevant section.

There are also plenty of opportunities for students who aren’t competing to help out. Contact the Competitions VP, Alexander Gibson.

Blackstone competitors are also able to represent UWA at a number of external competitions, notably the national championships held as part of the Australian Law Students’ Association Annual Asia-Pacific Conference. Other external competitions in which UWA holds a stellar reputation include the Phillip C Jessup International Law Mooting Competition and the Michael Kirby Contract Arbitration Moot.
