Mooting competition for law students
The Sentencing Council is inviting current LPC and BPTC students to take part in its second mooting competition. The competition aims to promote awareness of sentencing, the use of the sentencing guidelines, and the work of the Sentencing Council among law students.
Two winners will get mini pupillages at 25 Bedford Row Chambers and 2 Bedford Row Chambers.
The competition will consist of an initial written round, from which six entrants will be selected to go forward to semi final. Both the semi and final rounds will be held on 13 March 2013 at the Royal Courts of Justice in London and will be presided over by Lord Justice Treacy, a member of the Sentencing Council.
Anyone interested should email us with their name, course, university/law school and email address by 14 January 2013. They will then be sent a case study to submit a plea in mitigation for the written round.
