On Saturday 28 February 2015 Nottingham Law School held the fifth annual Ian Hutton Memorial Moot.

Ian, who sadly died prematurely at the age of 47 in 2010, had worked hard to rise above difficult personal circumstances as a child and teenager. Initially a professional actor, he then decided to change career and joined Nottingham Law School as an LLB student, achieving the most outstanding first-class degree that had ever been awarded. He went on to obtain a PhD, and then take the BVC. He became a member of the consultant faculty within the Law School and ultimately won a pupillage and then a tenancy at the prestigious Monckton Chambers in London.

As a student Ian had been a keen mooter, and he always took an interest in the development of young people. The annual undergraduate mooting competition takes place in his memory.

The moot this year involved a Public Law problem. The event itself was held in Nottingham Law School's courtrooms in the Chaucer Building. Rebecca Haynes from Monckton Chambers assisted by Rosina Winn, Ian’s former PA and now a solicitor, judged the moot.

The mooters were Alice Radford and Chinwe Chukwunonye, who represented the appellant, and James Croft and Joel Ballam, who represented the respondent.

The audience, made up of NLS students, lecturers, and former friends and colleagues of Ian, watched Joel take the prize for best overall mooter. Alice and Chinwe won on the law and the judges commended all of the mooters for their strong performance.

We are grateful for the generous support received from event sponsor Monckton Chambers.
