City University wins OUP/BPP competition

City University London has won the annual Oxford University Press and BPP University Law School national mooting competition 2014-15.

The competition is for undergraduate law students and law conversion students, and the fictitious moot problem for the final was a criminal division appeal.  

Charlotte Bellamy and Raphael Gray [pictured, with judge Charles Gratwicke, who presided over the final] each won a trophy and £750. Runners-up were Elspeth Venn and Sasha Conlon of Queen's University Belfast, sharing £700 between them; the other finalists, representing The Open University and the University of Greenwich, each received £150 of OUP books.

OUP senior marketing manager Clare Weaver said: "We've witnessed some extraordinary talent from the teams who made it to the final; the amount of preparation, the level of professionalism, and their flexibility under pressure does them all credit. OUP is proud to be part of a competition that can provide a stage for students who are so gifted and enthusiastic about their subject."
