Uni of Brighton and Uni of Sussex intervarsity mooting final
The intervarsity moot finale took place on Tuesday 7 March at the University of Brighton.
Our mooting competition allows Brighton Law School students to compete against other law students in a mock trial, where two sides argue a point of law in front of an acting judge who decides which side wins.
Our mock judge was Richard Ager, barrister at 1 Crown Office Row in Brighton. He judged the performance of Berenger Voegt (senior and junior appellant) for the University of Brighton – against Olivia Payne (senior respondent) and Kyle Cashin (junior respondent) for the University of Sussex.
The winner was Olivia Payne from the University of Sussex, who wins a mini-pupillage in family law with 1 Crown Office Row. Congratulations!
We would like to thank Richard Ager for judging the competition and our three student mooters for taking part in the competition.
On behalf of Brighton Law School, we’d like to give a special mention to student Berenger Voegt who covered for his senior appellant colleague at the last minute. His dedication, professionalism and positive attitude made us very proud to be team Brighton!
Thank you also to our wonderful audience for supporting our mooting finale.
Well done everyone – see you again next year at the University of Sussex!
