ANU Law students have contested the 18th Uqbar Medico Legal moot in the ACT Supreme Court before a bench comprising Justice Elkaim and Professor Thomas Faunce.

The competition on 9 May 2018 involved plaintiff and defendant teams, with six health law students as counsel and six medical students as expert witnesses.

Moot problems were based in Uqbar, a fictional country boasting jurisprudential innovations such as liquid democracy, rights of ecosystems, and corporate marriage to public goods.

The events in question customarily relate to the activities of the notorious Dr Jack Veronsky as he struggled to keep the Uqbar General Hospital financially violable in the face of threats from Neoconovian Nanocross Health.

Legal issues this year included consents to material risk and expansion of the concept of fiduciary duty.
