Kingsland Cup and Prize Moot

Kingsland Cup and Prize Moot

This prestigious annual mooting competition covers public, environmental and European law topics, drawn from FTB’s distinctive practice, and is named in honour of Christopher Lord Kingsland QC. The competition takes place over three rounds: the first round sees entrants judged on the quality of their skeleton arguments; the semi-finals are oral moots held before distinguished puisne and Court of Appeal judges; and the final of the competition is frequently heard before a current or retired Supreme Court judge. In 2020, the final, held remotely due to the pandemic, was judged by the late Lord Kerr of Tonaghmore, a retired UK Supreme Court Justice and associate tenant at FTB.
