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.
