We are delighted to announce that the annual FTB Kingsland Cup and Prize Moot competition is now open to teams of undergraduate, GDL, LPC and BPTC students.
With moots covering European, environmental and public law, the competition will take place over three rounds. The first round sees entrants judged on their skeleton arguments, with the top-scoring teams appearing at the semi-final in London before a distinguished high court judge either in person in a full mock court or virtually.
In 2020 the semi-finals and finals were held virtually. The final was judged by Lord Kerr of Tonaghmore, a retired UK Supreme Court Justice and associate tenant at FTB.
In previous years, the Grand Final has been held at the Old Bailey and the UK Supreme Court and judged by senior members of the judiciary. It is hoped that comparable arrangements for this year’s final will be confirmed closer to the time.
Prizes will be awarded to both the runners up and overall winners.

Please note that candidates need to complete the "Candidate Entrance Details" section only.
The closing date for first round entries is 4pm on Wednesday 23 December 2020.
