Devon Chambers at the Supreme Court Again

The final of the 2015 Devon Chambers Mooting competition was held in Court 2 at the Supreme Court in London on 2nd March and was presided over by Lord Toulson.

The competition is an annual event open to undergraduates attending the University of Exeter. This year saw over 100 participants taking part in moot problems covering a range of legal topics.

Rupert Taylor and Scott Horner from chambers were in attendance to offer advice to the 4 finalists and assist Lord Toulson in the prizegiving.

In a strongly contested moot based on the criminal defence of necessity, second year student Lowri Patterson was victorious, earning herself the 2015 title along with a £100 book token and the opportunity of a week long mini pupillage in chambers.

Lord Toulson congratulated all 4 finalists on their achievements in reaching the final and commented upon the high quality of the debate.

Our thanks go to Lord Toulson and the staff at the Supreme Court for making the event one which will live long in the memory of all those involved.
