Property Moot

Landmark Chambers holds an annual Property Law Mooting Competition, which provides students who are particularly interested in property law with an opportunity to develop their understanding of the subject and to gain some insight into the realities of practice through meeting members of Chambers’ property law team.

The competition comprises of a number of “knock out” rounds followed by a Grand Final. The two individual competitors who obtain the highest scores in the Final will each be awarded £500 and the opportunity to undertake a mini-pupillage in Chambers.

Property Law Mooting Competition 2017/2018

We are delighted to announce that, following the success of the past three years, we will be running the Landmark Chambers Property Moot for undergraduate law students for the fourth consecutive year.

We endeavour to give every student that enters the moot an opportunity not only to practice their advocacy, but also to meet a group of our members and hear more from us about life at Landmark and at the Property Bar. We will therefore be running the first round at Landmark Chambers on a Saturday in early November, between 11:00 and 17:00. In addition to the moots that will inevitably take place, the day will consist of a variety of talks and/or workshops run by our members. We will also be providing lunch and holding a drinks reception at the end of the day, to which all of our competitors will be invited.

All moot problems will be property-based and the final will be judged in London by senior members of Landmark’s Property Team and/or the judiciary. We are aware that there are some areas of a property practice which remain wholly unfamiliar to undergraduate students, and we shall be mindful of this when setting the moot problems.

The entrance deadline for the 2017/2018 competition has now passed. If you would like to register your university’s interest in future mooting competitions, please email propertymoot@landmarkchambers.co.uk

"Landmark Chambers’ Property Moot has proved to be a thoroughly enjoyable and educational experience from the first round through to the Grand Final. Taking part in the competition has allowed me to learn about Landmark Chambers and the types of work that its members undertake. I have also had the chance to argue interesting and new areas of law, make new friends and contacts, and was lucky enough to moot in the Royal Courts of Justice before Mr Justice Holgate.” (Adam Walton, Winner, 2016/2017)
