Oxford Brookes and Cherwell School Team Up

Thursday, 05 April 2012


After the School of Law here at Oxford Brookes heard that the Cherwell School had signed up for and had passed the initial stage of a mooting competition, the academics in the School could not wait to help out. Tutoring sessions run by Marc Howe were setup including an amazing experience in the old court room located in Oxford Town Hall. Students had the opportunity to run through their cases while being guided by an experienced lawyer to further develop their mooting skills.
"We are very grateful to Oxford Brookes School of Law for the support they have given the Cherwell School’s mock trial team in preparing for the national final. Emrys Hughes kindly arranged for us to spend an afternoon in Oxford’s Old Court Room, where the team were able to run through the cases under the expert eye of Marc Howe, who provided lots of very useful advice. Mr Howe kindly offered to come in to school for  further sessions with each section of the cases and individuals receiving advice, correction and encouragement from a preeminent instructor in the field. This was a really valuable experience for our students, which no doubt played a part in some of the truly exceptional (though unfortunately not winning) performances at the Old Bailey in the competition. We are very grateful for this support from Mr Howe, Mr Hughes, and the Oxford Brookes School of Law". - Adam Walton The Cherwell School
All of us involved at Oxford Brookes University really enjoyed our experience of working with students and staff from the Cherwell School and we look forward to continuing to aid them and building our relationship in the future.
