Strathclyde wins SLS Scottish Cup mooting competition

The University of Strathclyde Mooting Society has won the first NSLS Scottish Cup mooting competition.

The competition was the first time the NSLS has run a Scottish cup in addition to its English competition.

Strathclyde competed against the universities of Aberdeen, Glasgow, Dundee and Robert Gordon to reach the final.

Strathclyde’s team comprised Fiona Malone (senior counsel) and Lucy Brunton (junior counsel) (both pictured right).

This is the first inter-university mooting competition they have competed in.

The final took place between Strathclyde and Dundee University in Parliament House this week, with the teams being judged by Sheriff Alistair Brown on a question of human rights law.

As well as winning the moot, Lucy received the award for best advocate in the competition.
