Reading University Law Society Wins ‘Best Mooting Activities’ Award

On 15 March 2018 the LawCareers.Net Student Law Society Awards brought together students, recruiters, partners and trainees with the LawCareers.Net team for a networking-rich presentation at Painters’ Hall in London.

The annual event recognises the dedication of student committees across the country offering their members innovative careers events and comprehensive pro bono and mooting activities, alongside more traditional opportunities to socialise with their peers. Nominated societies were selected from the submissions of 48 student law society committees, alongside over 2,200 votes from their members.

“This year was the second year in a row that the University of Reading Law society was nominated for the ‘Best Mooting Activities’ Award sponsored by Blake Morgan. We are extremely happy to have our work recognised this year by winning the award!” – Harry Stewart, President, Reading University Law Society

The Law School is incredibly proud of our student Law Society who work tirelessly throughout the year to provide social and co-curricular activities for our students and to advocate for our Law students. This award is thoroughly well-deserved for their efforts in organising mooting and advocacy activities for all of our Law students – we have the internal Osborne Clarke mooting competition (64 competitors) which has its final in the Supreme Court on Wednesday 20th March, speed mooting sessions, an internal criminal advocacy competition where students practice the art of prosecuting or defending in a criminal trial. They send advocates to the BPP Advocate of the Year competition (we have Sam Carson in the final 12 next weekend), USSU National Mock Trial competition, UH/Blackstone’s National Criminal Advocacy Competition as well as many external moots.

Congratulations to our Masters of Moots Edith Scott & Mukund Kalla and all of the committee!
