This year’s OULS mooting competition is proudly sponsored by ICLR and by the UK Supreme Court Yearbook.
The UK Supreme Court Yearbook critically reviews the jurisprudence of the UK Supreme Court each legal year and publishes articles concerning institutional and jurisprudential aspects of the Court by leading commentators, including the Justices of the UK Supreme Court itself, distinguished professors, leading barristers (QCs), prominent commentators and judges from appellate courts internationally. For more information, visit www.ukscy.org.uk.
The Incorporated Council of Law Reporting for England and Wales (ICLR) was founded in 1865, and has been making case history ever since. The Law Reports 1865-2015 Anniversary Edition, published to mark the ICLR’s 150th anniversary, collects together for the first time the top 15 cases published in The Law Reports, as voted for by readers. They include such favourites as the one about the Carbolic Smoke Ball, the one about the Snail in the Ginger Beer, and the case that gave rise to the mysterious legal concept of “Wednesbury unreasonableness”. Introducing the cases are a series of essays by ICLR editors and by two external contributors, Guy Holborn, Librarian of Lincoln’s Inn and Professor Paul Mitchell, of UCL.
The winning team will receive two copies of Volume 7 of the UK Supreme Court Yearbook and two copies of The Law Reports 1865-2015 Anniversary Edition. The runner-up prize will be two Amazon gift vouchers.
The OULS mooting competition is open to all OULS members irrespective of whether they have mooted previously, however the deadline for applications for the 1st round has now closed. Successful entrants will soon be invited to appear in the semi-final and final rounds, held in London.
