Members support Mooting Competition
Members of Atlantic Chambers took to the bench as guest judges of the Liverpool University Law School's popular annual Mooting Competition.
The long standing tradition sees undergraduate law students compete as advocates arguing points of law in a simulated court room before a panel of judges, who consider their arguments and deliver their judgment on the students’ performances at the end of the moot.
Atlantic Chambers has sponsored the popular event for a number of years, with barristers
Third year winners, Michelle Burley and Emma Lynch, each received a small cash prize and a mini pupillage at Chambers. Runners-up in each of the three years Chris Pilgrim and Rosie Kavanagh (third year); Jourdain Tambo and Dimitar Dimov (second year) and Michael Rutter and Mark Thomas (first year) also received small cash prizes from Atlantic Chambers.
Adaora Okwor, Lecturer and Mooting Officer at The Liverpool Law School, added: “Mooting competitions this year have been hectic, enthusisatic and fun, thanks to the students who have remined faithful to their mooting commitments throughout the year. In the finals, with the opportunity to be judged by practicing barristers and to win mini-pupillages at local Chambers or marshalling with a judge at the QE2 Court in Liverpool and cash prizes, I think we succeeded in giving the finalists and other mooting enthusiasts a rewarding experience and an excellent end to the year.”
Atlantic Chambers, located on Cook Street, Liverpool, has over 60 members.
