ALBA is delighted to announce details of its third mooting competition, with the finals to be held on Tuesday 12 December 2023, from 5pm to 7:30pm, in Court 1 of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom.
The 2023 moot will be judged by Lord Justice Green, Mrs Justice Lieven and Christopher Vajda KC (former UK judge at the CJEU).
The competition is open to current law students, including LLB, GDL, LPC/SQE and BPTC/BTC/BPC students, and also to those who have completed the BPTC/BTC/BPC but not yet secured pupillage, as at 12 October 2023.
Mooters should enter in teams of two. Those wishing to participate should refer to the detailed instructions to candidates:
The competition will take the form of a speed moot in which mooters will argue certain points on the law of consultation on appeal from R (Eveleigh) v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions  EWCA Civ 810.
The first stage is judged based on applications for permission to appeal which must be submitted by 5pm on Monday 6 November 2023.
The prizes are £1000 for the winning team; £500 for the second-placed team. The four members of the winning and second-placed team will also each be entitled to a free place at the ALBA summer conference 2024 in Cambridge.
