Mooting Success at The Dickson Poon School of Law

Posted on 15/03/2018
Students at The Dickson Poon School of Law have enjoyed success in four major mooting competitions in recent weeks.

 

The White & Case London Vis Pre-Moot

On 4 March 2018 Gaëtan de Robillard and Mariangela Bucci – two LLB students – won the White & Case London Vis Pre-Moot competition, beating 11 other teams in a highly competitive tournament. The win puts the team in a good position going into the Global Vis Moot Finals, which will be held in Vienna later this year.

This is also the second year running that a team from The Dickson Poon School of Law has won the competition.

In an interview with Legal Cheek following her victory, Mariangela Bucci said that she had originally taken part to develop her professional skills, but that her involvement in the competition had since persuaded her to follow a career in law. 'I ended up falling in love with it,' Mariangela said, 'It has convinced me that I definitely want to become a lawyer.'

 

The ICC International Commercial Mediation Competition

On 7 February 2018 a team comprised of two LLB students, Abraham Brown and Salman Shaheen, coached by Dima Alexandrova, a recent LLM graduate, reached the finals of the 13th ICC International Commercial Mediation Competition. The team is officially ranked 4th out of 65 competing teams from all over the world after completing a semi-final stage.

Coach Dima Alexandrova said, 'The ICC International Commercial Mediation Competition is the world's most prestigious mediation advocacy event. The team would like to thank Ms Katie Bradford (Partner, consultant in Dispute resolution at Linklaters LLP) for her initial support, which was crucial to launch the project as well as the mooting team from The Dickson Poon School of Law in the face of the Mooting Director Dr Emily Hudson, Mr Daniel Robson and Ms Zoe Fear.'

 

Rajah & Tann-Cambridge Moot Competition in conjunction with the Cambridge Singapore Society

Two King's teams qualified for the semi-finals of the Rajah & Tann-Cambridge Moot Competition with one team going on to the final which was presided over by Sir Bernard Rix. KCL 1 team members were: Koh Cheng Jun, Gillian Chai, Matthew Choo, Chia Ren Jie. KCL 2 team members were: Shavonne Teo, Bryan Lim, Tara Lall, Lian Holohan. All participating students are currently studying on The Dickson Poon School of Law's LLB programme.

This is also the second time in three years that a team from The Dickson Poon School of Law has won this competition.

 

EU Law Moot

Finally, our European Law Moot Court team advanced to the finals in Lucerne, Switzerland. The team consisted of Alysson Havard (LLM), Zuzanna Bobowiec (Politics, Philosophy and Law LLB), Iseult Dereme (LLM) and Felix Herrman (LLM). The team was coached by PhD students in the School of Law, Luigi Lonardo and Giulia Gentile. Thanks to Professor Andrea Biondi and the Centre of European Law for their support.

Many congratulations to all of our students for these successes and their hard work, and a very special thanks to the coaches who devote their time to providing students with these opportunities.
