Kingsland Cup and Prize Moot

Kingsland Cup and Prize Moot

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-finals 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.
