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 prestigious competition.
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.
