Schools for scoundrels
The National Legal Eagle

Extract: What is the extent of a school’s liability to its students if they are injured by the deliberate actions of someone who is either a member of staff, or associated with the school in some capacity which makes it possible for them to harm students in some way? This was the hypothetical question posed in the 2004 Bond University High School Mooting Competition, which in 2004 attracted over 130 school teams from nine regions of Australia, and was, for the first time, extended to allow Malaysian schools to take part in their own competition.
