On Saturday 21st of February the UBLC hosted its second Annual Inter-varsity Mooting Competition. Fourteen Universities from around the south west and London travelled to the University of Bristol to compete in a knock-out style mooting competition. After two preliminary rounds in the morning, in which competitors were scored; the initial fourteen Universities were whittled down to only four. The first Semi-final was between Bristol University (Ant Asindi and Hannah Quinney) and the University of Law. The second was between the Open University and Queen Mary University. Along with academic staff from the University of Bristol Law School, the semi-finals were judged by partners from Bond Dickinson and barristers from St John’s Chambers, both of whom sponsor the event.
Bristol University and the Open University battled it out in the Grand Final in which Lady Justice Sharp illustrated both charm and rigour in responding to the mooters. By a small margin, the Open University deservedly won. Congratulations go to the Open University for winning the Competition this year. The two winners from the Open University, Mark Baldwin and Ashley Guest were each awarded with a mini-pupillage from St. John's Chambers.
The event could not have been such a success without the generous support from LexisNexis and our other sponsors. Thanks should also go to members of the UBLC Committee who helped administer the event. We would also like to thank Lady Justice Sharp who is a graduate of this Law School for judging the Grand Final.
