Undergraduate mooting final result
Monday, 27 November 2017
Oxford Brookes University recently hosted the final of the undergraduate mooting competition in their purpose built moot court in Headington Hill Hall.
First-year LLB team Megan Gordon and Shane O’Keefe were the competition winners. In the final they faced 2016 winners Becca Prodger and Anna Maria Szalay.
The Law school were pleased to welcome back two GDL alumni to act as members of the bench.
Andrew Brown and Oscar Schonfeld graduated from Oxford Brookes in 2013 and are now practising barristers in London, and also act as barrister mentors for the School of Law.
Andrew Kopkin, undergraduate mooting coach commented:
“This year there has been an exceptional level of participation by our first years, which is gratifying - and promising. Many congratulations to our four finalists; and especially to our worthy winners Megan and Shane - who now go on to represent Brookes in the first round of the OUP/BPP National Mooting Competition against the Open University.”
All students on academic law programmes in the School of Law have the opportunity to participate in internal mooting competitions, with the winners representing Brookes in national mooting competitions. Mooting is the traditional method through which law students are introduced to practical experience of courtroom advocacy. For more information on mooting see our mooting pages.
