The Supreme Court is getting closer!

The winners of the semi-final rounds of the GDL Mooting Society Competition will appear in the Supreme Court before Lord Wilson on Tuesday 19 May 2015 and will be tested on a moot problem to be drafted by BPTC student, John Goss.

The semi-final rounds of the ninth, annual Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) Mooting Society Competition took place on Wednesday 25 March 2015 in Nottingham Law School's Court Rooms. Eight students took part, each of whom had already participated in two preliminary rounds in order to reach the semi-final. The prize was high with each student knowing that if successful in this round, they were set to attend this year's final at the Supreme Court in London.

The GDL semi-finalists were Max Gordon, Alexandra Durling, Anna Clarkson, Rahul Gandhi, Mark Long, Hannah Payne, Michael Parrack and Toby Karenowski. The semi-final rounds were judged by this year's GDL Mooting Society Committee, made up of BPTC students Tom Heath, John Goss and Eleanor Davies, each of whom conducted themselves with great professionalism in their role. The moot problem was written by Eleanor Davies and tested the mooters' understanding of the law on unmarried cohabitees.

The standard of mooting was extremely high and all the participants did incredibly well, especially when it is remembered that they only mooted for the first time in November 2014. The four winners, who require particular congratulations, are Max Gordon, Alexandra Durling, Anna Clarkson and Hannah Payne (GDL DL).

These students will appear in the Supreme Court before Lord Wilson on Tuesday 19 May 2015 and will be tested on a moot problem to be drafted by BPTC student, John Goss. The students will be accompanied to London on the day by the Dean, staff and fellow students from Nottingham Law School.

The Supreme Court is getting closer!
