Mooting Masterclass - 27th Sept. 2016

 

Lecturer, Edward Mowlam, and Law Soc Competitions Secretary Abigail Sisnett, explained the rules, whys, wherefores and idiosyncracies of competitive mooting. Hopefully most were not put-off, and we look forward to another full and exciting year of mooting at the University of Bradford. We then enjoyed some pizza (from Mahmoods on Gt Horton Road in Bradford if you fancy a decent inexpensive pizza)
