They mooted against the University of Plymouth on the issue of the treatment of 'Evidence in Criminal Proceedings', presenting in front of barrister Emma Cross from the Devon Chambers.

Despite competing against excellent opponents, Riana and Rabi won their round with a score of 161 out of 200, and now go through to the second stage of the competition.

The moot provided us with an opportunity to develop important skills, both in the preparation and the actual moot itself. We were researching an area of law we had never delved into before, and had to know it inside out so we could overcome questions posed by the judge and arguments from a strong opposing team.
