LSBU through to quarter finals of Property Law Mooting CompetitionLSBU law students Max Short and George Nixon are one of eight teams to get through to the quarter finals of the Landmark Property Law Mooting Competition
London South Bank University (LSBU) Law students Max Short and George Nixon have made it to the quarter finals of the Landmark Property Law Mooting Competition, which was held at Landmark Chambers in central London.
Representing LSBU, Max and George attended the Competition, which brings together universities from across the UK, including competitors from Oxford, Cambridge, Queen Mary’s and Bristol.
During the morning session they received a talk from a junior barrister in his second year of tenancy, who had recently been a judicial assistant to a Supreme Court judge. His talk covered his experiences of pupillage and getting tenancy at Landmark.
Following the morning session, LSBU students competed against UCL in the first round of the competition. The judge asked Max and George challenging questions throughout the competition.
Reflecting on the experience, Max said:
“It was a tough moot but enjoyable. Following the final activity of the day, a workshop in property law and how Human Rights fits into it, the eight quarter finalists were announced. We were delighted to hear that we had gone through alongside some of the most prestigious universities in the country.”
Both Max and George are now preparing for the quarter finals which will be against the University of Kent.
