A team from Strathclyde University won the Royal Faculty of Procurators in Glasgow’s annual mooting competition, presided over by Sheriff Principal Anwar, on 8 May.

Two students at Strathclyde Law School, first-year student Sarah Akram (junior counsel) and second-year International student Harbani Kohli (acting as senior counsel), represented the appellants.

Mooters Hannah Nibloe (acting as junior counsel) and Niamh Crossan (acting as senior counsel), from Glasgow Caledonian University, represented the respondents.

Both teams put in strong performances as they grappled with the issue of whether the police could be liable in delict for harm caused by one individual protestor to another individual taking part in a counter-protest.

In awarding the cup to Strathclyde, Sheriff Principal Anwar commended both teams for their fine performances, stating that she would readily welcome all four of the mooters into her court given the excellent standard they had demonstrated.
