Postgraduate student mooting successes

Friday, 16 February 2018


Oxford Brookes Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) students have performed exceptionally well in recent national mooting competitions.

On 23 January Lucie Spence and Alice Aubrey-Fletcher competed in the first round of the ESU-Essex Court Chambers National Mooting Competition. They successfully defeated a team from the Open University, and will now face the University of Cambridge in the second round of the competition on 23 February.

On 21 January Roxy Lackschewitz-Martin and Carola Binney took part in the first round of the Inner Temple Inter Varsity Mooting Competition. They performed exceptionally well, but unfortunately did not progress to the later rounds of the competition.

The Law School will also be represented at additional mooting competitions this year. Carola Binney and Bramble Badenoch-Nicholson have been selected to represent the University in the Price Media Law Moot Court Competition, while Madeleine van Oss is representing the University in the UKLSA International Moot and Advocacy Competition.

Mooting is the traditional method through which law students are introduced to practical experience of courtroom advocacy. As part of its range of co-curricular activities that promote graduate employability, all students on academic law programmes in the School of Law have the opportunity to participate in a range of mooting events.
