Open to teams of undergraduate, GDL and BPTC students, the Kingsland Cup includes moots spanning European, Environmental and Public law and will take place over three rounds. 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.
