Law students display skills in national competition
25 April 2012
The LJMU LiverpoolSU Law Society mooting team represented the University on Tuesday 24 April at the prestigious UKLSA National Mooting competition finals day.
The team was made up of Level 5 LLB Law student Danny Greenland (Lead Counsel), LLB Law Level 4 student, Justine Allan (Junior Counsel), assisted by LLB Law Level 5 student, Kerry Usher who organised the event.
In the first round, the LJMU team scored an impressive victory over a team from the College of Law (Moorgate) propelling them into the semi-final, pitched against two postgraduate students from Oxford University. In a closely fought contest, Oxford University were chosen as winners in a single point 'tie-break' decision by a two judge panel.
In both moots, the judges, made up of senior QCs and barristers, noted the exceptional advocacy skills of the LJMU team members.
Andrew Baker, Academic Manager for LJMU's School of Law said:
"I am sure that you will want to join me in congratulating the team on putting in so much hard work and progressing so far in this national competition. The School continues to enjoy a strong presence in external competitions in both mooting and ADR/Negotiation/Mediation and it is the support of the entire school, students and staff that makes this possible."
