The 11th of January saw the final of the inaugural Times 2TG Mooting Competition. After six months and five preliminary stages, the United Kingdom’s largest mooting competition was concluded in Middle Temple Hall before an audience including the Lord Chief Justice, the Master of the Rolls and a number of sitting judges of the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.

The four mooters to compete in the final, John Williams and Cara Goldthorpe for the appellant and Michael Harper and Maurice Holmes for the respondent, were faced with a formidable and lively panel of judges consisting of Lord Clarke, Lord Justice Christopher Clarke and Sir Richard Aikens. The points argued in the specially written problem turned on the concepts of contractual estoppel and vicarious liability.

After an extremely close final, the Respondents were presented with the competition trophy by Lord Thomas, the Lord Chief Justice, with both teams also receiving cash prizes. 2TG congratulates each of the finalists on their impressive performances.
