- ICLR / Weekly Law Reports
Following a well-contested and fiercely competitive final,
the team from Christ's College Cambridge just edged out a team
from Lincoln University to claim the Annual ICLR Mooting Competition winnerís shield.
This yearís judge for the final was The Honourable Mr Justice Tomlinson
and he remarked that deciding the winner of the final had been an extremely difficult task.
Winning appellants Chris Wood and David Lowe actually lost their case
but their skills of argument and public speaking gave them the edge over runners up
Jessica Mack and Emily Marshall.
The aim of the competition is to encourage all law students to try their advocacy
skills at mooting, not just those students with aspirations to be called to the bar.
The ICLR's competition is now in its fourth year, and is open to undergraduate law students
or CPE students. Justis and The Law Society sponsored the 2004/5 competition.
