Inter-varsity Mooting Competition Champions 2015

Thursday, 22 January 2015


The GDL (Graduate Diploma in Law) mooting team, Jonathan Goddard and Brendan Brett, have won the Inner Temple Inter-Varsity Mooting Competition. The competition was held at Inner Temple in London on Sunday 18 January. Thirty-two teams from universities and law schools across the UK entered the competition. Jonathan and Brendan performed outstandingly throughout the five rounds of the competition, and defeated University College, London in the Final to win the King of Bhutan Cup. This is the second time in three years that Oxford Brookes University has won this prestigious national mooting competition, and Jonathan and Brendan will now represent Inner Temple in the 'Magna Carta Moot' in October 2015, in which they will take on the winners of the ESU Essex Court National Mooting Competition. The undergraduate mooting team, Bryony Smith and Emily Waters, who recently defeated Brunel University in the first round of the OUP/BPP National Mooting Competition, also competed in the Inner Temple Inter-Varsity Mooting Competition.
