Congratulations to the Oxford Brookes University GDL mooting team (Matthew Sellwood and Daniele Selmi) who night defeated Queen Mary, University of London in the Grand Final of the ESU/Essex Court National Mooting Competition on Thursday 29 June, held in the Royal Courts of Justice in London. This is the first time in its history that Oxford Brookes University has won a national mooting competition, and Matt and Daniele are to be congratulated on the excellence of their advocacy, which was described by the judges (the Hon. Mr Justice Eder, Professor Nicolas Grief and Paul Stanley QC) as "confident and authoritative". Matthew and Daniele were presented with the Silver Mace and £1,000 each, as winners of this year’s ESU - Essex Court Chambers National Mooting Competition.
