Congratulations to the Ulster Law Society team of Ben Lowry and Cerys Kennedy who defeated the QUB Law School team in the ESU Essex Court Chambers Moot on 31 January 2020! Well done! They are seen here with Michael Humphries QC who judged the competition.

Founded in 1972 as the Observer Moot, the ESU-Essex Court Chambers National Mooting Competition, organised by the English-Speaking Union and sponsored by Essex Court Chambers, is the largest and oldest of its kind in the United Kingdom.

The competition involves knock-out rounds held throughout the academic year and hosted by competing universities across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The Semi-Finals and Final are held in London in June. In addition to other prizes awarded, the winning team receives the prestigious Silver Mace.
