Budding lawyers from the University of Wolverhampton
have fought through to the next stage in a challenging mock court
The School of Legal Studies
undergraduates took on opponents from the London School of
Economics in the Oxford University Press (OUP) National Mooting
Competition held in London last week. The subject of the mock case,
or ‘moot’ was Contract Law.
The final year LLB (Hons) Law students, Lee Wood and Monica
Ikhile, are now through to the third round (the last 16) of the
Dean of the School of Legal Studies, Brian Mitchell, said: "Lee
and Monica should be congratulated on their progress in this
national mooting competition. To progress into the third round
after victories against Oxford University and now London School of
Economics is an excellent achievement."
Two teams compete in a moot by arguing a fictitious legal case
in front of a Judge. The case (or ‘moot problem’) concerns various
contentious legal issues and points of law. It is then up to the
two teams, the Respondents and the Appellants, to present their
side of the case to the Judge.
