The Connecting with Law Short Film Competition is an annual event run by Oxford University Press Australia & New Zealand. Now in its eighth year, the Connecting with Law Short Film Competition is open to all tertiary students currently enrolled in an Australian law school.

This year, we are asking participants to ‘bring your favourite case to life’ in the form of a video case note. To enter, students need to create a 2 – 5 minute film that provides a summary of their chosen case that will educate, entertain and engage students and help them connect with law.

We are looking for original and creative entries that highlight cases of interest to Australian law students (this means thinking beyond Donoghue v Stevenson’s snail in the bottle!) and show an ability to successfully prepare a case note and analyse case law. Not only are there great cash prizes to be won, but this is also a unique opportunity for students to get their names known in law.

Want to learn more? Visit the Connecting with Law Short Film Competition homepage  to read our submission guidelines, get tips on preparing a case note, download an entry form or watch the 2014 winners.

All of the winning and commended entries from previous years can be viewed online on the Connecting with Law Film Library.
