A pair of City Law School GDL students were thrilled to win the inaugural Westminster Law Review National Debating Competition on 7th November 2013.

The competition organised with the support of the Westminster International Law & Theory Centre featured 6 teams: University of Hertfordshire, Brunel, Lincoln’s Inn, Kingston University, Birmingham University and City. Three rounds took place in one evening; the first, a debate entitled: Does deception as to gender negate sexual consent? This was based on the McNally case [2013] EWCA Crim 1051.

The second round was based on the content of a Westminster Law Review podcast: What is the point of the UN Security Council following Syria? The third was based on an previously unseen statement.

Well done to Jonathan Lodwick and Eleni Dinenis – photographs from the event can be found on the Review’s facebook page. The award was presented by Sherif Elgebeily, the Westminster Law Review Editor-in-Chief.

The Westminster Law Review are always keen to receive submissions.
