Morrisons' Criminal Advocacy Competition

What is it?

After its debut in 2019, the Morrisons Criminal Advocacy Competition added itself to the roster of highly esteemed competitions held here at UOW. 

In 2022, the Criminal Advocacy Competition will once again return! 

This competition will focus on the skills required of legal graduates to prepare documents for, and present in court, in bail or sentencing matters. This competition will have a strong practical focus and help you get your head around crucial legislative provisions and principles.

Morrisons is a specialist criminal and traffic law firm based in
Wollongong, representing clients in the Local, District and Supreme Courts of
New South Wales.  

The University of Wollongong Law
Students’ Society thanks Matt Ward and Graeme Morrison for their kind
generosity and support of this initiative and our student competitors.

We look forward to collaborating with
them this year to once again support and sponsor this sensational competition.

When is it?

The 2022 Criminal Advocacy competition will be on Friday 16th and Saturday 17th of September 

Registrations are open now! 

The information session will be held on the 6th of September via zoom!
