If you’ve not yet got yourself on a moot team for this year then the rather excellent moot from the chambers of Francis Taylor Building is open to applicants. Hosted by FTB and sponsored by the Solicitors Journal, the competition is open to teams of undergraduate, GDL and BPTC students.
Topics covered include European, Environmental and Public law, the competition will take place over three rounds. If you are interested you need to submit a skeleton argument by the 6th December. Here’s what the FTB have to say about the Kingsland Cup:
“The first round sees entrants judged on their skeleton arguments, with the top-scoring teams appearing at the semi-final in London before a distinguished high court judge in a full mock court in the New Year. Last year’s Grand Final was held in Courtroom 1 at the Supreme Court, and was judged by Justice of the Supreme Court, Lord Carnwath of Notting Hill. Comparable arrangements for this year’s final are to be confirmed in the very near future.”
