Aberystwyth University mooters head to the Supreme Court

AberAberystwyth University’s Department of Law and Criminology held its internal mooting competition at the UK Supreme Court in London. Aberystwyth is one of 12 graduate law schools and university law societies that was invited to hold the final of its internal mooting competition at the UK Supreme Court in London.

In a moot two pairs of advocates argue a fictitious legal appeal case in front of a judge in mock court proceedings. After participating in several rounds of mooting throughout the over the course of the year, the finalists in the Aberystwyth University Internal Mooting Competition were: Jake Moses (2nd year LLB Law), Petranka Malcheva (3rd year BA Law with International Politics), Madeleine Griffiths (2nd year LLB Law) and Sean Kane (3rd Year LLB Law), and the winner was Petranka Malcheva.

The final took place on Wednesday 27th April, and was judged by The Right Hon Lord Hughes of Ombersley, Justice of the Supreme Court. The winner of the competition will be invited to attend a mini-pupillage at Iscoed Chambers in Swansea.

Professor John Williams, Head of the Department of Law and Criminology at Aberystwyth University says: “We are immensely proud of the departmental Mooting Society. It plays an important part in the life and work of the Department. Over the years, the Society has enjoyed many successes in national and international mooting competitions, including being the current Welsh champions. Its members work hard to promote the value of mooting and advocacy to students at all stages of their studies at Aberystwyth.”

Aberystwyth University Mooting Society is open to all students of the Department of Law and Criminology and gives members with the opportunity to develop their mooting skills through a series of training workshops and mooting competitions.
